Sunbeams over Aarhus - The Park Route
The 5,4 kilometres route starts and ends by The Natural History Museum. It follows asphalted path systems through the three parks – Universitetsparken/the University Park, Vennelystparken and Botanisk Have/the Botanical Gardens – in the centre of Aarhus. The route is particularly suitable for walking or running.
The park by Aarhus University
The Universitetsparken is placed in an open cleft dominated by a well trimmed turf with scattered oaks that form an open wood of oaks with many birds. In the centre of the Universitetsparken, there is a brook that continues through the Vennelystparken where nature has been given a freer rein.
On the way, you pass big and small lakes with all the birds that traditionally live by park lakes, for instance ducks, seagulls, coots and grey herons.
