Local in Aarhus

Catrine Høy Hansen was born and raised in Aarhus, and today, she lives in the most recently established part of town, Aarhus Ø. 

This place is experiencing a rapid development with creativity and the urban culture growing alongside the modern structures that shoot up one by one at the former harbour.

Ø is the Danish word for island, and the atmosphere there is what appeals to Catrine, in particular; she enjoys living in a big city close to woodlands and the sea. This is where she spends a large part of her time, as she loves to wakeboard, which is a cross between surfing, water skiing and snowboarding.

Catrine's guide

Aarhus Ø – the Island in the Heart of the City Awaits You

"During summer, lots of people usually find their way there, and if you prefer to enjoy your food in a more peaceful place, take it to the cosy marina wharf."
