About Aarhus, Denmark

Denmark, which is the smallest and most southern of the Scandinavian countries, is an interesting combination of lively cities and rural countryside. Historical forts and churches, modern architecture, jazz festivals--Denmark has it all. This country of 5.3 million people is a constitutional monarchy, with a reigning Queen. Danish, English and German are the main languages spoken. Like other Scandinavian countries, Denmark's society is socially progressive and tolerant.

Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and the capital of Jutland, the mainland. It has a well-preserved historic center, good museums, lovely old churches and is known for its rich downtown cafe life; picturesque winding streets and a river running through the center of town are popular afternoon and evening hangouts. Aarhus is known as a 'students' town' and also as the music capital of Denmark. Jazz festivals, opera and classical productions, as well as the annual Aarhus Festival, bring thousands of music fans into the city every year. Click here to see the university and surrounding area.
