Radisson Meetings - Aarhus

Aarhus

A vibrant mix of youthful energy and a living history

Why choose Aarhus for your event?

Over the past few years, Aarhus, which is Denmark's second-largest city, has emerged from the Danish capital's shadow, garnering a reputation among travelers as an exciting alternative for meetings and events.

Aarhus is located on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula, about 115 miles northwest of the capital, Copenhagen. From historic and cultural landmarks to its top-ranked university and booming culinary scene, Aarhus combines its Viking history with the best of modern city life. Experience exceptional meetings and events facilities, museums, restaurants, nature tours, and historical monuments.

Ideal location

Aarhus is well-connected to the rest of the world through two international airports: Aarhus Airport and Billund Airport, servicing 540 one-step connections and 60 direct routes. The Aarhus train station is just a few minutes’ walk away from Radisson’s two central hotels.

Aarhus is relatively small, with a population of just under 350,000, and can easily be explored on foot for the most part, with many of the attractions, shops and restaurants confined to a small central area.
