Leave Aarhus for a day to explore the Danish Lakelands. You will head to the heart of Jutland, for a walk in one of the most charming cities in Denmark, a cruise through the Lakelands and beer tasting. A perfect opportunity to experience real Denmark.
Meet your local guide in the morning and take the train to Silkeborg, an approximately 1-hour ride from Aarhus. Follow your guide around the city and decide for yourself if Silkeborg deserves the title 'most beautiful city of Denmark'. Enter the Silkeborg museum to learn about the area and admire the Tollundmanden (Tollund Man), the corpse of a man who lived in the 4th century BC.
Next, you will hop in a taxi to visit Grauballe Bryghus, a local brewery, and enjoy a beer tasting of various locally brewed beers. After you will head to the river. Here follows a 1-hour cruise on Hjejlen, one of the world's oldest steam ferries. Admire the stunning views with idyllic lakes as you cruise towards Himmelbjerget or Sky Mountain. Step into the private taxi awaiting you and will ride you to the village of Ry in the Gudenå area. After a short stroll through the picturesque town, you will take the train back to Aarhus.
