City of Smiles

Located on the sea, Aarhus blends a world city with a small-town feel. Home to a young population, the city has a reputation for producing internationally known pop and rock musicians.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Sat): get curious at Botanical Garden and the Greenhouses, then explore the world behind art at Aros Aarhus Kunstmuseum, and then walk around Marselisborg Deer Park.

Plan my Aarhus trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Adana, Turkey to Aarhus is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Turkey Time to Central European Standard Time is minus 2 hours. Traveling from Adana in May, you will find days in Aarhus are colder (19°C), and nights are slightly colder (7°C). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) so you can go by car to Odense.
