Aarhus (DK)

With a population of 320,000, Aarhus is Denmark's second-largest city and the fastest-growing in the country.

Being a city of engaged citizens, innovative businesses and students from all over the world, Aarhus is characterised by a strong spirit of cooperation and social cohesion.

In Aarhus, there is a belief that there is always room for improvement, and we do not shy away from taking on big challenges. Whether it is giant leaps in innovation or small steps in efficiency, Aarhus is all about taking what is there and improving it. This ability to rethink itself has made Aarhus a go-to city for international collaboration and a source of inspiration for both businesses and other cities. The City of Aarhus's vision is that Aarhus is and continues to be a good city for everyone. A city on the move. A city that works together.
