At the main central sation in Aarhus the railway is below the tracks, but each of the spor (platforms / tracks) can be accessed by escalators and elevators (the sign for the elevator is 'hiss'.)
A wide bridge within the building spans the tracks and it is where the ticket booking and travel desks are located, the 1st class lounge is also on this bridge.
At one end of the bridge is the beautiful station hall, which is where the main station entrance / exit is located - and at the other end of the bride is an entrance to the largest shopping mall in Aarhus.
If you will be departing by train and use the main street entrance, go ahead to the exit on to the bridge on the opposite side of the hall and the access points to each set of spor (platforms / tracks) will be on the right.
Spor (platforms / tracks) 1 and 2 are used by the light rail (metro) system in Aarhus - the stop in the Old Town area is named Skolebakken.

If you have a 2nd class ticket, it's best not to arrive too soon at Aarhus H, the station lacks a waiting room or seating areas.
Also the main train departure info screens only typically show departures within the next hour.

Once you are on the spor (platform / track) it will be zoned and the info screens, which can be found on each track/spor, show to where to wait on the spor/platform for easy access into a specific coach on IC and IC Lyn services.

A secondary bridge at the western end of the station, beyond the rear of the trains, houses the station's cycle storage, but when arriving by train, if your destination is to the south of Aarhus H - and you don't mind using the stairs, this bridge is a shortcut route.
