House in Aarhus (2nd on Lonely Planet's best in Europe list) , Denmark

We have made an exchange agreement for the summer 2019 but are open for "long weekends" or the full week October 12th - 19th 2019.

We can offer a two-floor, 230 m2 house in exchange, placed on one of the highest points of Aarhus. From the 2nd floor and the balcony, you have a nice view of the city of Aarhus. Behind the house we have a nice private garden suitable for relaxation, barbecues, or for playing with the kids. We have just built a 60 m2 wooden deck in the garden.

Within walking distance from the house you can find woods, parks, playgrounds, an amusement park, and very nice beaches. In one part of the forest you can see deer and boars, in other parts you'll find great mountain-bike trails.

Aarhus is Denmark's 2nd largest city with everything you desire for shopping and entertainment.

In 2017 Aarhus was the Cultural capital Europe (http://www.aarhus2017.dk/en/)

In 2016 Aarhus was 2nd on Lonely Planet's best in Europe list (https://www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-europe)

BBC has written "Living in: The world’s happiest places" (http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20131022-living-in-the-worlds-happiest-places)

Aarhus came in on a 2nd place on Lonely Planet’s Best-in-europe list 2016: “Step aside, Copenhagen. You’re not the only Danish city boasting cool-cat neighbourhoods, head-turning architecture and culinary wizardry. Aarhus is fast gaining fans – and accolades, too. In 2017 its titles include European Capital of Culture and European Region of Gastronomy – visit now to stay ahead of the curve.

Aarhus’ harbourfront is showing off fabulous new public spaces like Dokk1 (home to Scandinavia’s largest library), as well as show-stopping developments such as the photogenic Iceberg. Big-name museums ARoS and the newly re-housed Moesgaard captivate with daring design, plus quirks like a rainbow-hued rooftop walkway and a millennia-old ‘bog body’. Calendar-worthy events range from Viking moots to music festivals, and local produce is getting everyone excited. Book a table at the restaurants awarded Michelin stars in 2015, when the food-lovers’ bible finally began scouting beyond the Scandi capitals. It’s a trend well worth following.”
