In a city that brims with stores of all kinds, finding a place to buy a souvenir isn’t hard. However, if you don’t want to leave the country with just an ordinary token and instead bring back a unique and stylish souvenir, you may have to look harder. But fear not, here are the best places to buy souvenirs in Aarhus.
Søstrene Grene stands in Aarhus’ pedestrianised shopping street called Strøget. It’s a design store with a great selection of Scandinavian-style furniture plus other items and home accessories. The store’s collection changes every season but no matter when you visit the store you’ll find an elegant ornament to bring back home. The are several Søstrene Grene stores all over Europe but it certainly feels different to visit the original one in the city where it all began.
A piece of jewellery is always a great souvenir choice, especially when it resembles the Danes’ elegant and minimalist style. At Amok Smykker jewellery shop in Aarhus, you’ll find so many different designs for bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings that chances are you’ll leave the place with more than one item.
The Kähler and Friends flagship store in Aarhus doesn’t only display a great collection of modern, colourful ceramics but it also features the family’s 170-year tradition in the art of pottery. The store’s great collection of candle holders, mugs and vases – in different colours and shapes – offers endless choices for a gift to yourself or your loved ones.
Designertorvet has many things that you need and even more that you don’t necessarily need yet want anyway. That’s what souvenirs are all about, right? Bizarre design items, home accessories, kitchen utensils and personal items are only a few of the things that fill the store’s shelves. So, if you haven’t thought of the perfect souvenir yet, Designertorvet is certainly the place to get some inspiration.
Name something stylish that would make your home look nicer and we bet you’ll find it on the shelves of 1+1 Textil & Design. The hip shop features handmade ceramics, porcelain, jewellery, scarves, and many more things created by known and emerging designers while the owner’s award-winning pillows collection is certainly something not to miss.
Ceramic bowls, vases, knick-knacks and anything that one would put in a corner in a living room as a reminder of Denmark can be found in Lertøj boutique. A quick look at the items’ various styles makes it instantly clear that behind each creation stands a different designer. All the displayed handicrafts are made in the owners’ workshops in Jutland and are carefully selected before they hit the boutique’s shelves.
You’ll find a great variety of modern and traditional items in the 17th century Renaissance-style warehouse that now houses the souvenir shop of The Old Town Museum. From mugs and refrigerator magnets to the museum’s very own snap and brandy series, this souvenir store has something whether you’re looking to buy a token reminding you of Denmark’s past or present.
