About Aarhus

Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark with a population of approximately 300,000. The culture is lively and young, mainly due to the city's large student population (approx. 30,000).

Aarhus is an old city, but still young at heart! The city was founded by the Vikings as an open trading post at the river delta. Aarhus is an educational and cultural center, and its very soul is a charming blend, combining the atmospheres of a provincial town and an active city, which will make you feel welcome and at home. Scattered around the city you will find many restaurants, bars and cafes, many of which are located on the river bank and will accommodate all kinds of budgets.

Aarhus is really a remarkable place and offers many attractions – such as the open-air museum “The Old Town”, Marselisborg Castle, which is H.M. Queen Margrethe II's summer residence, and Moesgaard Museum. Discover its delights for 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 the Bay of Aarhus, surrounded by beaches, forests and lush scenery, yet bustling with life, Aarhus offers an inspiring setting for the Conference.
