IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE VIKINGS
Time & Location
About the Event
On this city walk around the old streets, the city's history unfolds - from the Viking city of Aros to today's Aarhus. We follow the traces of the old Viking town, which is buried and hidden under the old town centre. A beam from an old well, a basement under a bank and a few signs with street names help us along the way. Along the way, we ask some questions about the Vikings of Aarhus. When did they arrive, and why did they settle here? How far did they get on their expeditions, and what did they survive on? How big was the Vikings' Aarhus, and how many inhabitants did it have? Why did they call the city Aros? And many other questions...
