Sabro is a suburb of Aarhus in Denmark. Its population is 3,330 (1 January 2022).[1] It is located in the west of Aarhus Municipality, approximately 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) from central Aarhus.

Sabro has a sports club, football fields, a gym, grocery stores, hotels, a church, two recreation centres, a dentist, a health care center, a library and a public day school, Sabro Korsvejskolen.


The name was recorded in about 1150 as Sahebroch and in 1386 as Saubro; it possibly derives from Old Danish *saghi, "somewhat cut", referring to tree-felling, and brōk, "swamp".


Sabro was originally one of the smaller villages in the area, with a few houses and farms south and west of Sabro Church.

After the road between Aarhus and Viborg (today Primærrute 26) was built through the area around 1890, a small settlement developed at the crossroads about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the original village. In the mid-20th century the sogn (parish) councils of Borum-Lyngby, Lading and Sabro-Fårup (of which Sabro was part until 1 April 1970) decided to make this the location of a central school, Sabro Korsvejskolen (Sabro Crossroads School), which was dedicated in 1964.

In the 1970s and 1980s the crossroads settlement and the original village merged, as part of a strong urban growth which has since continued eastwards, covering former agricultural land in the direction of the neighbouring village of Mundelstrup.
