Lovely opportunity to stroll through the Danish Queen’s summer home in Aarhus and admire the mid autumn gardens and the outside of the home. We came to take the children to the excellent playground across the road and wander the expansive lawns (the war memorial...More

This wonderful, manorial building on a hill overlooking the sea is the summer domicile of the danish royal family. Its easy to find a parking space nearby in a dead end street from where you can walk around in the open park. Everything very relaxed...More

We stopped here and walked in to see the summer palace. It looks very nice and must have a great view of the harbor.

When the Queen is not in Aarhus it is possible to walk up to the palace and around in the gardens. Very well maintained and beautiful on a sunny day. There is free parking in the side street.

Fairly "modern" building, erected in 1902 I believe. Lovely house with a beautiful art-park surrounding it. Below is an even greater park, which was fully occupied by running events when we were there.

Royal Palace summer home, which everyone is free to walk around and peer into the windows when they are not in residence. Found this quite unique. The gardens are worth a look see too.

This is not a ''real'' castle, but still worth a visit. Its known as the royal family ''summer house'', but they use it around the year now and then. Take a walk in the beautifull garden, enjoy the silence even you are only 5 minutes...More
