Visit Denmark’s second largest city for yourself!
** This competition is now closed**
Congratulations to Olivia Johnson for winning a trip to Aarhus!
When it comes to Denmark, the majority of tourists head straight to Copenhagen. In fact, about 85% of tourists head straight to Copenhagen, and with reason – it is an absolutely amazing city.
However – and there is a however – there is so much more to see in the country than just the capital, so why not check out Aarhus?
Aarhus is Denmark’s second largest city, and despite being the smaller brother to Copenhagen it still packs a big punch with plenty to see and do.
Museums and art galleries such as the ARoS Art Museum and Moesgaard Museum are first rate, the restaurants are some of the best in Scandinavia, and the student population of around 60,000 people ensure there’s a constant buzz in the bars with a vibrant nightlife. Also, there’s a growing number of festivals, meaning there’s usually something going on in or around the city on the weekend.
With intimate cobbled streets right in the heart of the city at the old Latin Quarter, and the modern architecture at the new up-and-coming Aarhus Ø district to the east, the city provides a cool contrast while striking a nice balance, and there really is something for everyone. It’s small enough to get to grips with in a few hours, but lively enough to make you linger for days.
All of this means Aarhus has been selected as one of the European Capitals of Culture for 2017, and there’s never been a better time to go.
