THE CITY OF AARHUS
Aarhus – a vibrant city situated by the sea in the heart of Jutland – has been appointed European Capital of Culture in 2017. With a population of just over 300,000 people it also holds the titles of Denmark’s second largest city and the city with the youngest population, with a great number of cosy pubs, stylish cafés and always the option to have a dip in the sea. Being a university city and centre for education, Aarhus has a large student population and the average age of its inhabitants is among the lowest in Europe.
Anyone who appreciates architecture will find many points of interest in the city, realizing the big number of iconic buildings – well known from images published on the internet – Aarhus actually loges. Such as the new art museum ARoS with it’s famous rainbow panorama by schmidt hammer lassen architects , the Iceberg housing project a.o. by CEBRA located by the harbor, the recently finished Moesgaard Museum by Henning Larsen Architects as well as the City Hall by the famous Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen.
