On a trip with Jazz Boat

Get in the festival spirit on board the ship MS HELENE as it transforms into a Jazz Boat and the deck fills with great music.

The city's top jazz talents will visit the ship throughout Aarhus Jazz Festival. The ship leaves the dock and goes on an evening harbor tour around Aarhus Ø and past the old fishing port. All while the paddle wheels complement the wonderful jazz rhythms on board.

The tour starts in the inner harbor and continues to Bassin 7 and the new district of Aarhus Ø.

Welcome on board. Ahoy!

Beer, wine, long drinks, soft drinks, and coffee will be for sale on board.
