What brought me to the second largest city in Denmark? My best friend, that's what (make that who). She was out there for two months, and far be it for me to not come out to visit. To sum up Aarhus, it's a great combination of big city flair and small town charm.
On a related note, it's fair to say there's more than good reason Aarhus was named European cultural capital of 2017.
For one thing, the food is incredible.

The variety of cuisines to choose from at the numerous restaurants and food spots can whet
almost any appetite.
Then there's the art.

There's also a plethora of clothing and other shops guaranteed to have any traveler leaving with something to bring home.
At this point it's best to note some housekeeping details. Denmark is fairly pricey, with Aarhus not being an exception. As any travel resource will tell you, do your research to find ways not to burn a hole in your pocket. Also, the usual travel tips apply in terms of courtesy and the like.
With that said, I had a blast in Aarhus and you will too.
