Getting around in Aarhus

The map (PDF version available to the right) gives an overview of the different locations in Aarhus related to a visit at MADALGO. The distance from downtown Aarhus (where most of the convenient hotels are located) to the center site is approximately 2,5 kilometers. The distance is walkable but up hill. 

Taking a cab from downtown Aarhus to MADALGO will be around DKK 120. 


A good alternativ to walking or taking a cab is the city busses in Aarhus, they are all yellow. You enter the busses thorugh the middle doors (if it is a long bus) or the back-end (if it is a short bus), and you leave the bus through the front doors. The name of the bus stop is announced through the speakers + at a small screen in the bus. Press a red stop button when you need to exit the bus when your bus stop is being announced.

In order to get from downtown Aarhus to MADALGO you can take busses 2A (direction 'Skejby Sygehus') or 13 (direction 'Frydenlund') and exit at bus stop 'Storcenter Nord'. For direct guidelines please see 'How to get to MADALGO'.

In the bus you buy a ticket from the automated machine located in the middle/back of the bus. The machine accepts coins (it gives change), but only coins. The validity of the ticket is shown at the back of the ticket. You in general only need to purchace a 2-zone ticket to travel with Aarhus City, the cost is DKK 20 and the ticket may also be used in transit busses for 2 hours. If you do not have a ticket you risk a fine of DKK 600. 

In general there are four bus zones in Aarhus, and a bus fare depends on the number of zones. A 1-2 zone fare i DKK 20, a 3-zone fare i DKK 27 and a 4-zone fare i DKK 34. If you are going to stay in Aarhus for a week (or more), it might be cheaper to buy a 'klippekort' - a card valid for 10 bus rides'.


City bikes are available in Aarhus from 1 April to 30 October each year. You can use the bikes free of charge 24-7.

You pick up a city bike at one of the 57 city bike parking racks around town, by depositing a DKK 20 coin which will be returned to you when the bike is returned at any of the parking racks - same principle as with the trolleys at the super markets.
