About Aarhus

Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark with a population of approximately 315,000. The culture is lively and young, mainly due to the city’s large student population (approx. 40,000). 

Aarhus is an old city, but still young at heart! The city was founded by the Vikings as an open trading post at the mouth of the river. Aarhus is an educational and cultural centre, and its true soul is a charming blend combining the atmospheres of a beautiful town and an active city, where you will feel welcome and at home. Scattered around the city you will find many restaurants, bars and cafes, many of which are located at the river and suited to all budgets. 

Aarhus is really a remarkable place and offers many attractions – such as the open-air museum “The Old Town”, the ARoS Art Museum, Marselisborg Castle Queen Margrethe II’s summer residence, Moesgård Museum where you can go back and visit the early Viking Age, and many more. Discover its delights yourself. Most attractions are within walking distance and the city of Aarhus is the place where every wish can be fulfilled in fascinating and inspiring surroundings. 

Ideally situated at its bay, fringed by beaches, forests and lush scenery, yet bustling with life, Aarhus offers an inspiring setting for the symposium.
