Brabrand Lake is a lake in the district of Brabrand, west of Aarhus city, Denmark. The Aarhus River passes through Brabrand Lake and it is possible to canoe all the way to the inner city from here. The lake is oblong-shaped.
Since 2003, Brabrand Lake has been steadily extended 3–4 km further west, with the new lake of Årslev Engsø. In 2001–2, it was politically decided to abandon the artificial draining of the meadows and as of 2013, Årslev meadow lake has a surface area of around 100 hectares. The total area including adjoining meadows and reed beds totals 240 hectares. It is hoped that Eurasian bittern and otter will find themselves a new home here with time. In everyday parlance, "Brabrand Lake" is a general term including the surroundings as well, indicating a total area of around 560 hectares with 253 hectares for the lake alone.
