Park
“Lækker skov med udsigt over Århus bugt. Her er mange løbere, så er I til gode ruter, kan I sagtens finde nogle her! Der er nedgang til stranden fra skoven. Gør jer selv en tjeneste og tag en tur i Riis Skov, slå hjernen fra og hjertet til. Her kan I virkelig nyde et pusterum fra storbyens mylder.. Det kan især anbefales at benytte skoven i de tidlige morgentimer - der er en fantastisk ro.”

Restaurant
“Pips was established back in 1992 and serves both original italien pizzas and danish recipes (with gouda cheese). It is a small family run restaurant with only 5 tables, but during the summer there are tables set outside. In summer 2019 Pips start offering Asian food, cook by separate Asian chef. Every dishes are well prepare with fresh ingredients and taste just like the way it should taste in Asia. So here you can enjoy 2 cuisines in one restaurant. The service is very friendly and casual. The restaurant locates close to public beach access in Risskov. Bus no. 12 stops right outside the door step. Ps. they don't accept card, but only Paypal, cash and MobilePay.”
