DESCRIPTION: The ‘marine' tour by Aarhus Explorers will show you dramatic changes of the Aarhus waterfront. It is a perfect outing for those who love the mixture of modern architecture and marine landscapes. The coast from DOKK1 to Aarhus Ø is probably the fastest changing area of the city where you’ll be guided along green, historic or prize-winning buildings. You'll find out what kind of marine water life you can find in the Bay of Aarhus (mermaids included). The tour is very photogenic, so don’t forget your cameras. After the walk you can rest and relax in the beach bar next to the Student Houses.
