The City of Aarhus

Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark with a population of 315,000. It is the main port city of Denmark and is located on the east side of the peninsula of Jutland in the geographical center of the country. Aarhus is first mentioned in chronicles in 948 and archaeological findings date back some 1,300 years to Viking times, making Aarhus the oldest big city in Scandinavia. Today, Aarhus is a major educational center. With its many cafés and restaurants as well as discothèques, cinemas, museums, amusement parks, and various other entertainment venues, such as its numerous festivals and concerts, Aarhus is well known for its vibrant cultural life.
