Welcome to Danhostel Aarhus

Danhostel Aarhus is a lovely youth hostel, situated in the middle of the forest, Riis Skov, a short walk from the beach (approx. 5 min). The hostel consists of both old and new buildings. The main building, which is the original structure, was built in 1869 and contains a 7 meters tall octagonal hall, which was originally used as a dance pavilion, but now serves as the hostel’s dining hall.

The hostel is located a few kilometers from the center of Aarhus, and within walking distance of the pleasant district, Trøjborg, where you will find cafés, restaurants, a cinema, and various shops.

There are a few hundred meters to the nearest bus stop, Marienlund, where 5 different buses stop several times an hour. All of these buses go to the center of the city.

Danhostel Aarhus also has a big parking lot, free of charge for all guests at the hostel.

We look forward to seeing you!
