Marselisborg Deer Park (Danish: Marselisborg Dyrehave) is a 22 hectares (54 acres) enclosed woodland area in the northern parts of the Marselisborg Forests. The trees are somewhat sparse here and the terrain especially hilly, compared to the surrounding forest.

Marselisborg Deer Park is not a deer park in the original sense, as it is not meant for hunting deer. The idea is more like a small safari park, but just presenting a few common species, without exotic animals. Initially sika deer were introduced to graze the curvy open woodland hills, but later roe deer and wild boars has been added.

The park was established in 1932 and have since been enlarged several times. It is owned and administered by the Aarhus Municipality.

  • If you want to experience deers close by, this park is the place to go. Its a very beautifull place with stunning nature.  more »
  • Nice walk for families and/or children. Two species of deer in this park as well as wild pigs (boars) but they have a separate area. Lots of people had brought carrots with them to feed the deer.  more »

  • Never have I ever been so close to Deer! This is an amazing peaceful place to visit. I wish I leave near, to spend any after noon there. The beach is right in front.
  • A deer park where the animals go freely. It is admission free but yoy are welcome to bring a bag of carrot or apples with you. The deers will love it! They will come to you in search for treats. The entrance has double doors so that no animal can run away and be hit by a car.
