City of Smiles
Located on the sea, Aarhus blends a world city with a small-town feel. Home to a young population, the city has a reputation for producing internationally known pop and rock musicians. Nicknamed both City of Smiles and City of Cafes, Aarhus welcomes visitors to experience a relaxed pace, to indulge in the cafe culture, and to absorb historical architecture in the old town district. The city's many museums give visitors an insight into Danish history and the Vikings who settled the city. Add Aarhus and other destinations in Denmark to your travel plans using our Denmark holiday maker.
