Egå (English: Oak Stream) is a suburban district and a stream in the Municipality of Aarhus in Denmark. The stream runs north of the city of Aarhus, in the bottom of the flat valley of Egådalen, eventually terminating at the Bay of Aarhus.
The whole valley of Egådalen - 1,5 km wide and 6 km long - was created as a tunnel valley at the end of the ice age and holds numerous evidence of prehistoric human activities, from the stone age to present times.
The suburb of Egå
The suburban area of Egå is located approximately 7 km north of the Aarhus city centre and is named after the Egå stream, that flows through the area. The suburb is one of the more affluent neighbourhoods, with some of the highest cost of land in the municipality.
