Vadestedet means the ford or the wade - and has for centuries been the crossing point at the small river Aarhus Aa. Today it also a popular meeting point in the cafe-area whenever the sun is shining from mid april to late autumn. If it's too cold the cafees and restaurant provides gaswarmers and blankets.
