Meet Aarhus – the City of Smiles
Denmark is one of the world's leading destinations for international meetings. And Aarhus, located on the eastern coast of the Jutland peninsula, is Denmark's second largest city. Aarhus has a population of approximately 340,000 inhabitants , and over the past few years, Aarhus has become a popular host city for international scientific congresses and conferences, and is now among top 75 destinations in the world on the ICCA ranking of international meeting destinations.

Aarhus is a university town, with the youngest urban population in Denmark. But it is also one of the oldest cities in the nation, founded in the Viking age. The vibrant mix of youthful energy and a rich history is what makes Aarhus special.

Downtown Aarhus – easy-going style and liveability
There’s lots to do and see in downtown Aarhus – and all within easy walking distance. One of the most popular areas is ‘Vadestedet’, wherecafés, restaurants and shops line the Aarhus River – a great place for a meal and people-watching.

Another must-see is the Latin Quarter, the oldest part of the historic downtown, with quirky shops, inventive restaurants and narrow cobbelstone streets. This is the place for fashion, crafts, food and Danish design you won’t find on the high street.

Within the past few years, a new part of town, Aarhus Ø, has seen the light of day on the harbour waterfront, and this exciting district is rapidly expanding.
