Exlore the history of the old city and how the vikings fortified Aarhus (named Aros at the time), how the city was founded and what daily life used to be like.

Your guide will take you to places relevant to the Nazi's occupation of Denmark, informers and bombings, and explain how not all citizens were opposed to the new law enforcement until Gestapo.
