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.

I visited the park a sunny day in October. There are many sculptures and several small rooms with flowers or. I can imagine that the park is beautiful in the summer, but it was certainly in the beautiful fall colors 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

Yes, we walked into a castle grounds , something not possible in Many places on earth..and the royal family was not at home..or else this would not be possible . For those who love architecture, this iasomething worth considering.

Except when the royal family is staying there the park is open to the public and invites you for a walk around the lovely park with big old trees, a rose garden etc. There is no access to the palace itself.
