Theme Park
“Tivoli Friheden It is all about entertainment The cosy garden offers plenty of experiences with beauty, entertainment, concerts, theatre and much more. With its wide range of opportunities and entertainment, Tivoli Friheden is the ideal choice for all kinds of excursions. Tivoli Friheden is a theme park in the center of Aarhus located within walking distance from the city centre in the beautiful Marselisborg Forest. In Tivoli Friheden you will find four roller coasters, 40 rides, stalls, games and playgrounds. ‘Hjertekig’ free fall tower In 2019, Tivoli Friheden presents their new amusement ‘Hjertekig’, a 65-metre free fall tower and the highest in Denmark. The highly distinctive tower has changed the Aarhus skyline noticeably. There are two ways that you can take the ‘jump’. The daring can take the free fall from the top and reach 5G acceleration. Or you can sit and enjoy the views while descending slowly and steadily, going round the tower all the way up and down. The stinging Cobra Have you got nerves of steel? Do you dare go 70 kilometres per hour head down? Can your body stand the same G effect that a fighter pilot endures? If you can say yes to all three of these, then you are ready to board the Cobra and try the most awesome roller-coaster in Tivoli Friheden. This adrenaline-rushing orange monster is the ultimate test of whether you can stand the strain when the speed gets really serious. The Sky Tower If you are one of those who can't wait until the next adrenaline kick, then the Sky Tower at the Tivoli Friheden amusement park is exactly what you have been waiting for. This is certainly not for the faint-hearted. This is only for those with nerves of steel who are literally not afraid to leap into wild adventures. Standing 40 meters above the ground, overlooking all of Aarhus, it is only the toughest of the tough who dare take the leap. Before you awaits the maddest free fall, where you reach a speed of up to 90 kilometres per hour before landing in the net. Only one question remains: Do you dare? For the youngest one Bille By is an entire town for families with young children. Here you can take you very own driving license if you are between 5 and 8 years old and drive around in small electric cars. You can also take a breathtaking ride with "Bisværmen" which turns and twirls or try the ever-jumping Grasshopper. It is a blasts for the youngest ones! Haunted House and Cinemagic in 5D Get ready for some action-filled experiences in Tivoli Friheden! In the Haunted House and the Cinemagic you can get scared with the coolest movie-game adventures in 5 dimensions. If you get the highest score of the year, you get your very own tile at the parks "Walk Of Fame". Dining in Tivoli Friheden There are restaurants to suit every taste and if you wish to bring your own picnic basket, there are BBQs and dining areas for this. Free entrance with an AarhusCARD You get free entrance with an AarhusCARD but be aware that it doesn't include the unlimited ride wristband.”

Library
“This is actually the city’s main public library, but it is so much more than that. It’s a place for families to hang out and play, great for working at studying and there is always many events taking place. From here you can take a nice walk at the harbor area. Remember to visit ‘Havnepladsen’ where there is a playful water fountain where it is nice to chill and hang out for families and students. Hackkampmannsplads 2.”
