Easter holiday’s in Denmark are celebrated more than many might expect when coming from abroad. Meaning that normal routines in the cities, workplaces, schools and more get shifted to completely new schedules.

The following is  some relevant information in case you are spending your days from the 8th to the 17th of April in the city of Aarhus.

Buses

The city and interregional buses will be driving under different schedules than normal. The following is the official information by Midtraffik about these dates. We recommend you using the Rejseplanen app to check accurate routes and arrival times. Usually Google Maps and other transportation services do not make the correct updates on all the holidays of the year.

April 10th to 12th: buses drive on Saturday’s schedule.
April 13th and 14th: buses drive on Sunday’s schedule.
April 15th: buses drive on Saturday’s schedule incl. night bus service.
April 16th and 17th: buses drive on Sunday’s schedule.

Note that there will be NO NIGHT BUSES during these dates except for Sat. April 15th, which will run on normal schedule.

Supermarkets

Main supermarkets around the city will have as well special opening hours. Considering many of them will be completely closed for these dates, it is very recommended that everyone plan in advance the meals of the week and weekend within these holidays. The supermarkets that continue to be open during some special times of these days will be very crowded, with long paying lines. In order to avoid this and any other inconvenience take a look at the following information.
