“Go for a stroll in Aarhus’ University Park and experience the unique campus atmosphere. The University Park is a nice place to enjoy a sunny day on the vast grass lawns with their shady trees, and you are surrounded by the iconic buildings and dorms of Aarhus University, and you will also find Aarhus Natural History Museum on the premises. The area is a lush, green oak park with a lake in the centre of the rolling moraine valley, where you will come across ducks and other wading birds. The University Park is a breathing space in the city for employees having their lunches, students studying for their exams, local children and visiting tourists.”

“Lækker skov med udsigt over Århus bugt. Her er mange løbere, så er I til gode ruter, kan I sagtens finde nogle her! Der er nedgang til stranden fra skoven. Gør jer selv en tjeneste og tag en tur i Riis Skov, slå hjernen fra og hjertet til. Her kan I virkelig nyde et pusterum fra storbyens mylder.. Det kan især anbefales at benytte skoven i de tidlige morgentimer - der er en fantastisk ro.”
