Hosts Laila and Morten Truelsen welcome you to Danhostel Aarhus located in the "City of Smiles".
Combine Beach, Fun and Culture

Danhostel Aarhus - In the middle of the Forest, within Walking Distance to the City Centre
Danhostel Aarhus lies amidst the lovely Riis Forest, north of the city centre. When you spend the night with us, you are only a few minutes’ walk from Den Permanente, which has both a beach and sea bath.
Danhostel Aarhus has modern and well-preserved older buildings. There are thirty-five rooms, mostly on the ground floor, an elegant dining room, which serves a healthy breakfast buffet, barbecue and campfire areas, free car and coach parking, WI-FI, a playground and petanque. We offer everything you need for the perfect accommodation during your holidays in and around Aarhus, and we are the perfect location for singles or groups.
Eight Sided High Ceiling, Breakfast and Lunch
After a cold morning dip, eat a well-deserved breakfast in the hostel's historic eight-sided dining room, which previously housed the city's dance pavilion. The seven-metre high ceiling, which echoes the daily conversations of our happy guests, creates a unique atmosphere. There is room for everyone at Danhostel Aarhus. After you settle in and get ready to go on each day’s exciting excursions, feel free to make your own packed lunches in our well-equipped guest kitchen.
Aarhus - The City of Smiles
Aarhus is the smallest major city in the world and Denmark's second largest. It oozes with charm and offers countless opportunities for shopping and socialising. Aarhus city centre is only a few km from the hostel. A stroll through the cosy neighbourhood of Trøjborg takes you to the city centre, which has a walking street, Aarhus Cathedral, sidewalk cafés by the river, the shopping centre Magasin, Salling and Bruun's Galleries, and the iconic City Hall tower designed by Arne Jacobsen. Discover how Åboulevarden evolves from a quiet café atmosphere during the day to vibrant nightlife as the evening progresses.
The City of Smiles provides great experiences round the clock.
Art and Culture
When you say Aarhus, Moesgaard Museum, Scandinavian Congress Centre, Concert Hall, or ARoS comes to mind. Have your pick of the city’s many cultural offerings. Dive in and be intoxicated by the six theatres, conference centre, concert halls, and art exhibitions. Aarhus hosts the Jazz Festival each year in July, and Aarhus Week - the biggest cultural event held in Scandinavia - in September.
The city offers a wealth of experiences. Visit the Old City, the art museum ARoS, with its rainbow panorama skywalk mounted above the roof, Tivoli Friheden, and Bazaar West.
Afterwards, if you need a bit of relaxation with family or friends, spend a day inside and socialise with other guests, or have fun outside on the natural playground.
Come to Aarhus and stay with us at Danhostel Aarhus, located in the middle of the forest, yet within walking distance of the city centre.
