Aarhus Ø - Aarhus East
Aarhus Ø is the newest part of Aarhus
The new part of town is well under way and is now a charming mosaic separated by canals. From the downtown cafés there is only a few minutes’ walk to the south facing ledges in front of the educational campus, Navitas, where you can dip your toes in the cool sea water.
One of the most distinctive structures is the Iceberg by the Aarhus Ø waterfront.
Don't miss the new Aarhus Ø city quarter, an area full of vibrancy and activity:
The Harbor Bath
In July and August you can go for a swim or hang out at the new Harbor Bath, a vibrant meeting point and oasis. The Harbor Bath is designed by the famous Danish architect Bjarke Ingels Group BIG. The triangular floating complex comprises a rectangular 50-metre-long swimming pool, a circular diving pool, square children's pools and two saunas. Take a walk on the elevated plan walkway, which doubles as a viewing platform overlooking the pools and water beyond. The promenade deck is open 24 hours a day throughout the year.
The observation tower
There are lots and lots of new things going on in Aarhus Ø, and most recently this area got its very own observation tower. You can climb the tower and enjoy a panoramic view of the city and the bay of Aarhus.
Sea swimming course
Sea swimming has become the new black in Aarhus. Once you are smitten by open sea swimming it is a habit which is hard to let go of. The swimming course is for sea swimmers.
Navitas Science and Innovation is one of the many buildings which have recently emerged on the waterfront in Aarhus, close to the new Aarhus Ø city quarter. The 38,000 sq m star-shaped building, which was designed by architectural firms Kjær & Richter and Christensen og Co., is well worth a visit simply because of its architectural presence and the marvellous outdoor areas around the building have become a popular oasis on the waterfront with stepped levels, perfect for taking a break.

Fregathavnen - Ebeltoft
Fregathavnen (The Frigate Harbour) contains a well-reputed shipyard for wooden ships manned by specialists in the restoration and maintenance of old wooden ships. Every year, more than a thousand ships visit this harbour,
many of them large, rare wooden ships, such as the schooners Fulton, Zar and Brita Leth as well as Troels Kløvedal’s widely-travelled ship, Nordkaperen. The Frigate Harbour can be seen from the harbour promenade opposite Glasmuseet Ebeltoft (The Ebeltoft Glass Museum). You can get access to the Frigate’s inner harbour area as well as the pier and The Bastion
by paying for entry to Fregatten Jylland (The Frigate “Jutland”).
