Where to park
On this map you can get an overview of public parking areas in Aarhus. Please note that the text is in Danish.
You can click on the button in the upper left corner, where you can choose to view motorcycle parking, handicap parking, placement of parking zone signs, charging stations for electric and hybrid cars, pay stations and parking for busses and trucks. The two layers already applied are citizens parking areas, and payment parking areas.
In Denmark it is required by law to have a parking disc in your car, it can be either manual or electric. If you have a parking disc in your car, from your own country, you can use this disc when parking in Denmark. Your parking disc must be visible through the windshield.
When you park, your parking disc should be set to the nearest 15 minutes (15, 30, 45 or 00), for example if you park at 15:24, your parking disc should be set at 15:30. This goes for the electric parking disc too, it must have the same intervals, and not show the exact time of parking, like the above example at 15:24.
When parking a motorcycle, the same terms apply as when parking a car, both in areas with a time restriction and with payment. There are a few parking bays reserved for motorcycles in Aarhus, but motorcycles are not limited to parking in the reserved bays.
Electric and Hybrid cars

The two links provided, shows which type of plug there is on the charging stations, and if the stations are free or occupied.
If you have a nationally approved disability parking badge, you can park free of charge on the public parking areas, provided you place your parking badge in the windshield, where the whole badge is clearly visible.
If you park in a time restricted area, different rules apply when you have a disability parking badge. If the time restriction is 15-30 minutes, you can park for up to 1 hour, you must set your parking disc upon arrival. If the time restriction is 1 hour and up, there is no time limit when you place your parking badge in the windshield.
If you park in a reserved disability parking bay, and there is a time limit on the sign below, you must follow this restriction.
In areas where only loading and unloading of goods and passengers is allowed, you can park for 15 minutes, on the condition that the parking disc is set. The same applies to areas with a parking ban.
Aside from the mentioned exemptions above, you must adhere to the Danish Road Traffic Act and park accordingly.
In a bicycle street there is a parking ban, except in the marked parking lanes and bays. Loading and unloading people and goods is allowed on a Bicycle street.
Parking in front of a driveway or gate is prohibited.
Stopping and parking within 10 meters of an intersection is prohibited. See illustration below, the actual intersections can vary in appearance. In the city center, we mark the distance to the intersections with a yellow triangle on the curb.

The road leading into a well-defined parking lot, both private and public, will often be classed as an intersection. If there is unrestricted access to the parking lot, and it services more than one residence, the distance of 10 meters on both sides comply.
