15 Best Things To Do in Aarhus (Denmark)

2. Moesgaard Museum

Moesgaard Museum

This attraction has collections from around the world, but the exhibitions covering Denmark’s past boast artefacts you can’t see anywhere else.

If you have the nerve take a peek at the Grauballe Man, a bog body from the 3rd century BC that was discovered in 1952.

The body was so well preserved that they were even able to take the man’s fingerprints.

There’s also a large hoard of Iron Age weapons dating back well over 2,000 years and excavated at the Illerup Ådal river valley.

Part of the museum’s appeal also lies in its sleek low-impact design, with a grass-covered roof that blends almost seamlessly with the surrounding hillside.
