Aarhus is Denmark's second largest city and was for a time called the world's smallest capital. And with good reason. You will find a royal palace, a university, harbor, cathedral, theater, concert hall, and dynamic business and cultural center.
Art and culture thrive in the city with ARoS Museum, Aarhus Theatre, and the Concert Hall as flagships and complemented by many smaller stages and venues, galleries, festivals, and events all year round. Although there is much to see and do in Aarhus, you should also take a walk in the lovely countryside with its large forests and marvelous beaches, which are perfectly suited for recreational activities and scenic walks. You can also hire a bicycle—Aarhus is an ideal city for cycling—and combine the nature experience with exercise.
