Where to eat?
Aarhus Street Food
Ny Banegårdsgade 46, 8000 Aarhus
Looking for cheap food from all corners of the world? From Mexican tacos to Vietnamese bánh mì’s, Aarhus Street Food will surely delight. Located in an old bus garage, Aarhus Street Food is the mecca for food enthusiasts. Explore all kinds of sweet and savory snacks from more than 30 street kitchens and bars, at an affordable price.
Jægergårdsgade 9, 8000 Aarhus
Tucked away on one of the coziest streets in Aarhus, you’ll find a hidden gem in Åland. Serving up cheap (and delicious) brunches and 99kr burgers every Monday, you’ll leave with both your belly and wallet full.
Nørrebrogade 4, 8000 Aarhus
For fast (and healthy) food, check out Miss Green. Serving up fresh salads and sandwiches, you’ll power through your homework with renewed energy. And be sure to leave your gut in good spirits with a splash of kombucha to wash down your delicious meal.
Where to drink?
Åboulevarden 46, 8000 Aarhus
If you love Berlin nightlife, you’ll love Herr Bartels. Cozy up with your classmates while listening to some indie/pop in this relaxed, Berlin-inspired atmosphere. And get your buzz on with 2-for-1 cocktails all day, almost every day (Wednesday through Saturday).
Fiskergyde 15, 8000 Aarhus
Claiming to be the hyggeligste (coziest) bar in Aarhus, Vinstuen serves up cheap drinks and good vibes. Into games? Test your knowledge every Wednesday at Vinstuen’s popular Pop Quiz night. And if it’s your birthday, they’ll give you a free bottle of bubbles. Cheers to that!
Tír na nÓg
Frederiksgade 40, 8000 Aarhus
In Irish mythology, Tír na nÓg means “Land of the Young.” And you’ll surely find it here. You’ll also find a massive range of beers, ales, ciders, whiskeys, rums, tequilas, cognacs and more. So whatever you’re thirsty for, I’m willing to bet Tír na nÓg has it.
Where to shop?
Skt. Clemens Torv 8, Rømerhus
A new year requires new threads. Head on over to Danish fashion label BESTSELLER to cop the latest fashion trends at a reasonable price. Choose from one of many BESTSELLER brands—Jack & Jones, Only & Sons, Pieces, Selected, Y.A.S. and more.
Immervad 2, 8, 8000 Aarhus
If you’re the type who “just wants it over with,” head over to Magasin, your one-stop megastore for all things fashion. Deep dive into sales racks to save some major cash.
Søndergade 70, 8000 Aarhus
For all you sneaker freaks out there, Rezet is a must. And for hard-to-find drops, Rezet’s got you covered—like those Kanye West-designed Adidas YEEZY sneakers. So walk to class in style with some fresh new kicks.
Where to be entertained?
Søndergade 27, 8000 Aarhus
Take in the evening sun on Salling’s rooftop. Enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the city while sipping on some Chardonnay.
Alberts Bar FREE Stand Up Comedy
Store Torv 3, 8000 Aarhus
Don’t miss out on Alberts English Stand Up Comedy and Open Mic Nights every Sunday starting at 20:00. Whether you’re new to the city, a local or a foreigner, all are welcome at Alberts—and it’s FREE. So go get your giggle on with your mates.
Ørneredevej 6, 8270 Højbjerg
Visit Bambi and her friends at Marselisborg Dyrehaven (Deer Park). And deer aren’t the only animals you’ll see. Get up close and personal with wild boars. Not to worry, they’re fenced in. If nature’s your thing and feeding animals is your game, head on over to the park to destress from all that homework being thrown your way!
