A vibrant centre of art and culture, Godsbanen is located in beautifully restored buildings which used to house freight trains. We enjoyed an excellent dinner in spacious and unique surroundings and soaked up the atmosphere of one of Aarhus’ most dynamic cultural environments.

Visited the exhibition hall during the Aarhus Art Convention 2016. A neat hall with a decent restaurant in it. The sloped roof gives a view over the railyard. Would say that it worth a visit of an hour or so, Depending on the exhibition.
