Create an itinerary including Marselisborg Deer Park
Marselisborg Deer Park (Danish: Marselisborg Dyrehave) is a 22 hectares (54 acres) enclosed woodland area in the northern parts of the Marselisborg Forests. The trees are somewhat sparse here and the terrain especially hilly, compared to the surrounding forest.

Marselisborg Deer Park is not a deer park in the original sense, as it is not meant for hunting deer. The idea is more like a small safari park, but just presenting a few common species, without exotic animals. Initially sika deer were introduced to graze the curvy open woodland hills, but later roe deer and wild boars has been added.

The park was established in 1932 and have since been enlarged several times. It is owned and administered by the Aarhus Municipality.

  • Nice deer park with free access and free parking up front. Just follow Google navigation to this point on the map, you can park in front of the gate. Nice for a walk. (From this parking it's also only a 5 minute walk towards the infinite bridge)
  • Situated just over the road from the sea, the deer park is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Take a stroll in the beautiful surroundings and get up close and personal with many semi tame wild deer. Take fruit and veg to feed them and you will literally have them eating out of your hand. Free parking around the outer edge. Highly recommend.
