Getting around in Aarhus

By walking:

The entire city is clean, compact and well-organised, which makes walking an excellent and enjoyable way to get around.

To walk from the centre of the city to the university takes approximately 30 minutes.

By taxi:

To book a taxi, please call this telephone number (+45) 8948 4848 or ask your hotel receptionist. There is also a taxi stand right outside the main exit of the train station and conveniently located taxi stands all over the city.

By bus:

Midttrafik, the municipal bus company, runs the yellow buses in the city. The bus route number is indicated at the front and the back of the bus and the destination is displayed at the front and above the rear door. Aarhus is the only city in Denmark where passengers enter through the back door and exit through the front. Every bus is equipped with a ticket machine and a validation machine at the back of the bus. You can purchase single and multi-ride tickets.

Bus tickets for travel within the city limits (Municipality of Aarhus limits) cost 20 DKK. Ten-ride tickets are also available which vary in price depending on how far you want to go. Please check the Midttrafik website for more information on busses and city links.

By cycling:

Denmark is an ideal country for cycling. There are not many (very) steep hills and there are many safe cycling paths. Urban conditions for cyclists are constantly being improved. Look out for the special cyclists’ routes (cykelruter) and cycle paths (cykelstier).
