 About the University Park

The Steno Museum is located in the University Park in Aarhus together with the Natural History Museum and the Museum of Ancient Art. The park offers great opportunities for a relaxing stroll and for enjoying your packed lunch in green, recreational surroundings. The University Park was established in1933 by landscape architect C. Th. Sørensen and is constructed in a beautiful hilly terrain around two artificial lakes. The architectural firm C. F. Møller is responsible for the unique design of the architecture and has drawn almost all of the university buildings from 1931 until today. South of the main building of the university you will find an amphitheatre with app. 3000 seats. The University Park is the largest oak park in Denmark and has a rich wildlife of birds, squirrels, hares and bats.
