Aarhus, situated in the region of Mitteljütland, is the second biggest and “youngest” city of Denmark – THE students' city of the country!
As European Capital of Culture 2017 Aarhus called under the motto “LET'S RETHINK“ for reflection about future and past at the same time as for finding new collaboration and to establish old ones.
One year long the city provided art and culture in high quality, from and by Danish and international artists within 12 full moon-events and more than 160 artistic projects: values like democracy, sustainability and the 500 anniversary of the Protestant Reformation were also part of the program as a focus on children, nature and first-class gastronomy!
Also in respect of architecture Aarhus offers many interesting sites since 2017:
The so-called “Iceberg”, a huge housing complex located next to the harbour, impresses with its' courageous architecture; the new library DOKK1 (opened in 2015) stands for the transformation from an old education institution to a multiple venue for culture and events; the ARos Museum for Contemporary Art attracts with the “Your rainbow panorama” of Olafur Eliasson, an accessible installation on the roof top and the Moesgaard Museum of Henning Larsen Architects combines culture, nature and architecture in an extraordinary way.
