Aarhus, Denmark’s second-largest city, calls itself the “World’s Smallest Big City.” It’s like one cozy neighborhood, where all of the biggest attractions and beautiful sights are within walking distance of each other. The city is located on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula, about 186 km northwest of the capital, Copenhagen. Aarhus is often referred to as “City of Smiles” for the friendliest and happiest bunch of people living in the country. 

Rethinking The Future Awards 2022

Aarhus features numerous architectural styles and works from the Middle Ages to the present day and has well-preserved its medieval city center and oldest buildings. The city’s biggest attraction is the Aarhus Art Museum (ARos), one of the largest museums in Northern Europe with its dazzling rooftop sculpture called “Your Rainbow Panorama,” where you can see Aarhus in 360 degrees in all the colors of the rainbow. Aarhus’ other spectacular sight is Harbor Bath Designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels Group BIG, a triangular floating complex featuring a rectangular 50-meter-long swimming pool, a circular diving pool, and two saunas. 

Aarhus provides the perfect blend of modern city life and traditional Danish values with a vibrant center of learning and a cultural hub with a plethora of museums, restaurants, and modern architecture that makes it an attractive destination for both youths and grown-ups alike.
