So let us guide you through the city Aarhus and all the beautiful places there is to see here. It is finally time for us to invite you to the home of Moonchild and let you discover Moonchild´s roots.
Where did Moonchild Start?
Moonchild was founded by Louise Wang Nielsen (Founder and Creative Director of Moonchild Yoga Wear) in 2015 in her home in Aarhus, Denmark where she lives with her husband and two little boys. Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark after Copenhagen and is located on the east coast of Jutland. As the city was founded in the early Viking age, Aarhus is one of the oldest cities in Denmark and have many places to discover and things to do in this city.
When you come to Aarhus, going to ARoS is a must. ARoS is the art museum in Aarhus and is also one of the biggest art museums in northern Europe. It is recognized for its rainbow panorama on the top of the building, with a view of all of Aarhus. If you ever decide to go to Aarhus, make sure to pass by ARoS and take a look at the magical building with the rainbow panorama. Take a look at the architecture inside and enjoy a nice coffee break at the coffee place inside. Or why not go all in and discover the different art exhibitions and finish it at the rooftop restaurant and the rainbow panorama?
Enjoy the Infinity Bridge
We move on a couple of kilometers south of Aarhus center to Varna Strand where the infinity bridge is. This is not just a bridge where you can go for a swim during the summers but it is also an incredible art piece that was made by the architectures Niels Povlsgaard and Johan Gjødes. Make sure that you walk around on the infinity and enjoy the seaside that beautiful Aarhus also offers.

We cannot leave you without another museum that is positioned a bit outside of Aarhus in Højbjerg. Let us discover the Moesgaard Museum that is dedicated to archaeology and ethnography. Just start off by seeing the incredible architecture of this museum. The museum is built on a hill and the roof is filled with grass.
Our journey through Aarhus and the roots of Moonchild has come almost come to an end.
