7 things to do in December along Aarhus waters!

 

We love being on, in and at the water! No matter if it’s summer or winter, rainy or sunshine. If you love activities by the sea and are searching for different things to do in Aarhus, just take a look at our 8 ideas to enjoy beautiful December days in Aarhus by the water.

 

1. WINTER WALK TO THE NEW HARBOUR AREAS

It’s stunning how the harbour areas developed (from DOKK1 all the way to the tip of Aarhus Ø or Aarhus Lystbådehavn). Start your walk at DOKK 1 and walk along Aarhus Å towards of Aarhus Ø a neighborhood at the waterfront.  Now the city and port are finally melting together. The entire area appears as a charming city along the canal. Wear a warm jacket, bring a cup of coffee and take your time to explore the “new city” and the view over the wide sea.

2. VISIT VINDANMARK FOR WINE, TAPAS AND THE BEST GLÖGG IN THE CITY!

If you don’t know the most cosy place at Aarhus Fiskerihavn yet, it’s really time to book your next free evening for a visit at Vindanmark! Finest wines, the best Glögg in the city and delicious Tapas to very fair prices. Self service – You take yourself, pay yourself  – a great concept at an awesome waterfront-location! Every Thursday Vindanmark offers “TORSDAG TAPAS” (tapas and wine for 2 person, 200 kr). Also over the winter time they offer cosy events like wine tastings and secret dinner events. Perfect also to combine with a walk through the new harbour areas.

4. NO CHRISTMAS WITHOUT SEAFOOD

A visit at P. Clausen Fiskehandel ApS makes you feel you are living in a harbour city! Clausens Fiskehandel is Denmark’s oldest fish hall and offers fresh and smoked fish from Monday til Saturday. We also love their lunch sandwiches, fishballs or sushi. And you can enjoy your snack at the beautiful waterfront with a view to all the sailing boats.

5. WINTER BIKE RIDE AROUND BRABRAND LAKE

A beautiful walk from the western “country side” of Aarhus, right into the city. Ideal for a morning-weekend-walk before you end your tour at one of Aarhus christmas markets :).

You can also bring a picnic basket and find a bench or wood to watch the beautiful winter landscape. There are plenty of possibilities to sit and relax.

6. CREATE CHRISTMAS DECORATION WITH SEA VIEW

Get into the Christmas spirit at Dokk1. Bring your family and decorate Christmas ornaments, cones and Christmas balls. You are welcome both to make ornaments for the Christmas tree on Dokk1 and for your own Christmas tree. Maybe you get some very creative inspiration for the decoration, when you look over the sea – We created Surfer’s christmas decoration :)!
