Aarhus is Denmark second largest city located on the eastern coast. It’s a college town, with 13 percent of its inhabitants studying at the University. This makes Aarhus a center of culture and good, inexpensive eats. In 2017, it was named European Capital of Culture. The famous Scandinavian Fjords are nearby.
Museums and galleries in Old Town are an important part of Aarhus. The ARoS Museum features contemporary art from around the world. The Viking Museum relates to early Danish history. The Aarhus Cathedral dates to the 14 th century, and the Marselisborg Palace, residence of the royal family, is open to the public when the Queen is away. As in any college town, hot jazz, beer, and food are a critical element. Try some artichoke ice cream with caviar. The students love it.
Aarhus is small enough to explore on foot. There is something new and exciting around every corner. So, bring comfortable shoes and your Aarhus photographer to capture every detail.
