  • 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. Denmark is an open and safe society where almost everyone speaks English. Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and 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.
