Come to the beautiful Royal Gardens and Park situated around the Royal Summer Residence Marselisborg Palace. You will explore the area around the Queen's summer residence and numerous pieces of art in the park overlooking the Bay of Aarhus. The guide, Joanna, will tell you stories about the royal pool, playing lions, herb and rose gardens and reveal secrets of the palace’s interior. The palace remains closed for the public, but we can enjoy the park with its gardens, orchards, flowers and sculptures.
This is a perfect Sunday outing and a great place to take pictures of the sea or just have a picnic.
