Get close to Denmark’s second city on a holiday in Sabro
The little town of Sabro has only around 3,000 inhabitants, and is a suburb of Denmark’s second city, Aarhus. A stay here means the chance to try everything Aarhus has to offer in the way of entertainment and art, great shopping and cuisine.
Sabro is home to an old wayside inn that runs a series of intimate concerts throughout the year, and features a restaurant that serves wonderful dinners and tasty brunches at the weekend. There’s also a riding club, library and several specialist shops to browse.
It’s only 8 miles from Sabro to Aarhus. The main road of Viborgvej runs right through the town, linking it directly with the city centre. There is an excellent bus service right into the main bus terminus in the heart of Aarhus.
Begin your visit to Aarhus at the ARoS art museum, to admire the impressive collection of traditional and modern art with its fantastic view over the city from the Rainbow Panorama on the rooftop. Back on the street, there are all the shops you would expect to find in a city of this size on Strøget, the main high street that stretches from the train station down to Aarhus Domkirke. Round off the day with a great dinner in one of the restaurants along the banks of Aarhus River.
Get off the bus a little before the city centre to visit Den Gamle By. This open-air museum was founded as an old market town with 80 historical buildings brought here and rebuilt from sites all over the country, dating from different periods from the 16th to the 20th centuries. A special Christmas event is put on every December, and draws many tourists.
Sabro is a place where you can enjoy a tasty dinner in a relaxed setting, combined with a visit to the charming city of Aarhus. The short distance makes it easy to travel between the two, meaning that a holiday in Sabro has something of everything.
