About Aarhus

Highly accessible and at the geographical heart of Europe, Denmark's second biggest city and port (population approx. 300,000) is renowned for its broad streets and light traffic (in which bicycles figure prominently), its youthful and easygoing atmosphere, and its multi-faceted nightlife. The unofficial capital of Jutland, Aarhus dates back to the Vikings, and its rich history is reflected in fine old buildings which have been complemented in recent times by a great deal of internationally celebrated modern architecture, not least Aarhus University (founded 1928) which often claims to have the most beautiful campus in Scandinavia.

The City has a wealth of excellent restaurants, a fascinating café environment, and a rich musical culture with the Concert Hall, the Aarhus Symphony Orchestr a, and the Danish National Opera. Aarhus also has a large and splendid art museum, ARoS, hosting both a representative Danish collection of major international exhibitions, and a range of excellent historical and archaeological museums, such as The Old Town (consisting of buildings transplanted from all over the country) and the Moesgård Museum, best known as home of the Grauballe Man.

Aarhus has excellent transport connections with destinations throughout Denmark, Scandinavia and Europe by rail, road, air and sea.
