Randers is Denmark's sixth largest city and offers all the facilities of a modern city without loosing its connection with its past. It has been known throughout history for its talented merchants and even today, you will find great shopping. The city is divided by the Gudenå River. So you only have to venture a few hundred meters from the city centre before finding some of the best fishing waters in Europe. The proximity to nature also allows for an active holiday with biking, hiking or kayaking in the beautiful surrondings of Randers. Finally, Randers is known for thinking out of the box. Where else in Scandinavia will you find a jungle with over 200 species of tropical animal living freely under three domes? Or find a replica of Elvis' home Graceland where you can learn about his life, music and see the world's 10th largest collection of his belongings.
