Active summer holidays in Aarhus and surrounding areas

The long and fun summer holidays have officially started as the children have now stopped their classes in order to enjoy some quality time with the families. However, for many parents, specially those who work, these times can be challenging as they find the right activities to keep them entertained. Sometimes it might be hard to find the right one that matches their interests, their age range or the location that suits the family best.

So in order to solve these problems the city of Aarhus, as well as many others in the entire country, has created an incredible program for all families with children living or studying in a private or public school of this municipality, so they can attend endless activities throughout this awesome period. Find additional links to other municipalities at the end.

What is there to know

All the activities planned for the weeks 26 to 32 and which are found in their program are free to attend and are targeted specifically to children that are attending classes from the 0. to the 8. grade.

The participation of your child will exclusively depend on the grade (age range) he/she was before the summer vacation and the proper registration before each of the events (when necessary).

The city has focused on offering a wide range of professionally organized holiday activities where there is permanent presence of adults taking responsibility for their safety.
