Egå (English: Oak-stream) is a suburban district and a stream in the Municipality of Aarhus in Denmark.

The Egå stream[edit]

The Egå stream runs north of the city of Aarhus, in the bottom of the flat valley of Egådalen. 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 Egå stream has its source at Geding Lake and from here it flows through the Geding-Kasted bog, the lake of Egå Engsø, the suburban area of Egå and the beach park of Åkrogen, before it terminates at the Bay of Aarhus.

The Egå suburb[edit]

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.[citation needed]

Egå houses a lively marina (Egå Marina) and The Egå Sailclub is one of the most successful youth sailing clubs in Denmark.[citation needed]
