Why Aarhus

Strongest points of Aarhus

One of the city's strongest points is the large selection of professional conference facilities and high-quality hotels in the city centre. Conference delegates can be accommodated in the heart of Aarhus, within walking distance of their conference venue.

Feel the beat
Everywhere in Aarhus you can feel the pulse-beat of a big city and yet everything is within easy reach, making the city an exciting and atmospheric place to enjoy all the year round. The student culture, the entertainments, the shopping, the attractions and sights, and the wide selection of eating places provide excitement and pleasure by day and by night - all year round. The promenade along the Aarhus Å river abounds with cafés, and in the "Latin Quarter" is a host of tightly packed shops. Aarhus is just the right size: a vibrant city, yet full of intimacy.

The difficult choice
Choosing between the many attractions and entertainments in the city can be tough. A living and breathing market town museum at The Old Town, dizzying amusements at the Tivoli Friheden, concerts at the impressive Concert Hall, soaring multimedia shows at the Steno Museum planetarium, and fascinating art exhibitions are just a small selection of the experiences awaiting you in Aarhus.

These, and many other venues, may also be used for business-related activities. You can use these unconventional venues to fashion your conference into a unique event which the participants will remember the rest of their lives.

Everything within reach
In the city everything is within easy reach giving the conference participants the opportunity to make the most of their time here, whether in business or in pleasure. Aarhus also boasts easy access to and from the city: frequent international train services, motorway links, national and Scandinavian ferry lines, and two airports (Aarhus and Billund) all make for an excellent external infrastructure.

Highly professional services
The university environment and the dynamic business sector have also left their distinctive marks on the city. It should prove highly beneficial to have the local research and business community partake in your event to help provide conference delegates with an excellent impression of Denmark and its professional capabilities. In addition, the city's highly professional service reception division provides expert multilingual advice and servicing for international visitors.

And, on top of all this,
Aarhus has many wonderful green areas, and the city is surrounded by sandy beaches and woods, making it perfect for pleasant and easy trips into the beautiful surrounding landscape.
