About Aarhus
AarhusThe city of Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark with a population of 315,000 within the city limits and over a million people in the greater Aarhus area.

It is geographically diverse as both the beach and the forests are all within a bike ride. Aarhus is known for its focus on renewable energy, food, health and productivity. One can satisfy all of their hobbies because there is always something to do! Students enjoy shopping and socializing in the city centre, visiting one of the countless museums, exercising outdoors on the numerous paved paths around the city, relaxing on the beach or attending cultural festivals. Aarhus is both a beautiful and an exciting place to be!
