The climate in Aarhus changes a lot! In the spring months of May and April, it can be very mild, hotter in the summer months of June till August. The weather is often windy and with a lot of rain in the fall months (October till December) and sometimes very cold in the winter months from December till March.

In July the average temperature is about 22 degrees, the month of July offers approximately 200 hours of sunshine, but unfortunately also an average of 67 millimetres of rain (source: www.dmi.dk)
The weather at the end of July – the time of Football Festival® Denmark- has for the most part been good, seen over the last nine years. In 2003, 2006, and 2008 the weather was so fine that it was almost like a heat wave. We have experienced rain at Football Festival® Denmark, but the tendency is clear: When thousands of Football Festival® Denmark participants comes to Aarhus, the weather tends to be good!
