North, West, South towards all directions
The best spot to go is definitely located near Viby Torv. Take bus #5, #15, #25, #26, #52 or #55 towards Viby Torv. Get out there, walk some meters back to the big traffic light and go to the left into the Viby Ringvej. You'll also recognize bords announcing the highway. Walk along this street for around 1 km, then the on-ramp for the highway appears. There's enough space for you to stand on, easy to catch cars in all directions.
East towards Copenhagen
There are two ways to go to Copenhagen.
- Go to the harbour of Aarhus (see map) and have a look for the ferry towards Sj. Odde. Wait in front of the terminals with a sign for Copenhagen, nearly everybody is going there.
- If you don't like ferrys you can also hitchhike via the highway. In this case use the hitchhiking spot mentioned above.
