DESTINATION: AARHUS

Aarhus is Denmark’s second-biggest city and one of its most attractive. Bohemian, cheerful and modern, it is becoming increasingly popular as a destination. Some 300,000 people live in this small city, which is a veritable melting pot of cosmopolitan and traditional, historical and modern.

By day, you can visit Aarhus and its museums, parks and splendid cathedral. After dark, Aarhus transforms and becomes a setting for unforgettable nights out. The European Capital of Culture in 2017, Aarhus also boasts many parks and other outdoor spaces where you can relax or simply pause for a bit. The official means of transport is the bicycle, although many attractions can be visited on foot.

The open-air museum Den Gamble By is a must; the site is made up of 75 typical Danish constructions from different parts of the country and you can go inside and find out more about the history of Danish architecture. The art museum ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum houses a collection of works by Danish and international artists, as well as a high-quality permanent exhibition. The Moesgaard should definitely be on your must-see list. Here, you can wander around the prehistory and archaeology exhibitions and see the Grauballe Man, the best-preserved Iron Age mummy in Scandinavia. And if you still have the energy, we recommend a visit to the Botanic Garden, the Viking Museum, the Dokk1 Library and the magnificent Gothic building of Aarhus Cathedral.

If you are looking for a study destination, Aarhus might not be an obvious choice – but it certainly has a lot to offer. A large percentage of the population is made up of young people. The student population numbers around 40,000 and the city is pretty lively, especially at night. You have a wide range of teaching establishments to choose from, including Aarhus University, the Aarhus School of Architecture, the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg, and the Jutland Art Academy, to name but a few.

Where business is concerned, various important sectors work out of Aarhus, including industry, research, port activities, finance, tourism and commerce. Going to Aarhus means breaking new ground with regards to business and commercial relationships.

Aarhus is closer to southern Spain, the Algarve and the Alentejo from Faro Airport. Discover the routes.
