The perfect location
Aarhus is a dynamic city on the Jutland peninsula. From here, beach, harbour and forest are all only a 15-minute bike ride away. The area around Aarhus also offers the biggest concentration of attractions in Denmark. Must-see sights, such as the Jelling Rune Stones, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are all in easy reach, as well as fjords and beaches to explore.
Denmark’s youngest city!
13% of Aarhus’ population are students, making Aarhus the youngest city in Denmark. Historically though, it’s one of the oldest. 315,000 people live in Aarhus and 1.2 million people live in the greater Aarhus area, so it’s the perfect size for a weekend break or family getaway.
