Aarhus – The City of Smiles

Within the heart of Denmark is where you’ll find the stunning city of Aarhus. Nicknamed the ‘City of Smiles’, you can bet it earned this reputation for a reason. With its stunning architecture, mesmerising landmarks and an atmosphere that seems to come alive on its own, there’s never a dull moment.


Aarhus is a truly beautiful city with more than 1200 years of history. Historically, it functioned as a fortified Viking settlement in the 8th Century. Recently uncovered archaeological sites have discovered long-forgotten firepits and longhouses. Along with rather impressive Pagan burial grounds.


From its Viking age, the city soon transitioned into a religious centre. Hence the many remarkable Churches that you can still visit today. The still standing 13th Century Cathedral is a must-see monument. What with its truly breathtaking Romanesque architecture. Not to mention the fascinating frescoes which litter the interior walls, or the many chapels and tombs found within.

In more modern history, the city was quiet heavily impacted during the Second World War. With evidence of the German occupation still being heavily present in the city. Thanks to all this longstanding history, Aarhus certainly is quite the cultural spot.


For some of the more artistic visitors, don’t worry! Aarhus has just the thing for you too. The city is home to some of the most revered museums in all of the Scandinavian regions. The ARoS Art Museum and the Moesgaard Museum are the most highly recommended attractions. Attracting over one million tourists annually.


There is also a stunning Botanical Garden just on the outskirts of the city centre. Despite the somewhat cold climate, the Aarhus greenhouses provide the perfect temperature for all sorts of exotic plants.
