Moesgård Prehistoric Museum

Among many interesting objects and artefacts, this museum is also where the 2000-year-old Grauballe man (world's best-reserved bog body) is contained. He was found so well-kept that scientists even discovered that he had eaten porridge for breakfast on the day he was sacrificed.

Do & See

The relatively large influx of young people and students from across the Nordic countries creates a natural base for cultural activities, and there are countless cafes as well as clubs, cinemas, museums, parks and various other venues of entertainment. Each year, the town hosts several festivals and concerts including Aarhus International Jazz Festival in July and Aarhus Festuge in September—the biggest themed festival in Scandinavia.
