My perfect day in Aarhus
Where to drink: Fatter Eskil
It is such a “hyggelig” place and there is often live music. The place is very LGBTI+ friendly, as its owner also runs Gbar, the city’s LGBTI+ friendly nightclub, just across the street. Once you are done with the bar atmosphere for the evening and looking for a dance floor, it is only a few steps away!
Where to eat: Pinden
My wife is from the Faroe Islands, and I thought it was important that she tried some real Danish food, so our first date was at Pinden. Here you can get a lot of Danish classics including all you can eat “stegt flæsk” (fried pork – Denmark’s national dish), “æggekage” (Danish omelette) and “hakkebøf” (ground beef patty). I always combine a solid Danish dish with a pint and a snaps. I don’t think it gets anymore Danish than that...
Where to explore: Sydhavnen
This gives you a new perspective on the beautiful and more polished modern city. Here you will find Skraldecaféen, where you can get a free meal made from surplus food from local grocery stores. It is also possible to join a Povertywalk, where a homeless, socially disadvantaged or a former homeless person shows you around the area, sharing their life stories and what Sydhavnen has to offer.
