Removals to Aarhus, Denmark: Living in Aarhus
Aarhus, also known as Arhus, is the second largest city in Denmark with a population of 1.2 million in the greater metropolitan area. However, the city itself is quite small in size, so it is easy to find your way around.
Nicknamed 'The City of Cafes', it's easy to see why as there are so many cafes dotted around the city - and these make great destinations for people watching. After visiting one of the many cafes, you can marvel at the ancient and modern architecture, take a stroll along the cobbled streets, shop, or head to one of the sandy beaches.
If you require removals to Aarhus, you will be pleased to know that it is a friendly city that has earned itself the nickname, 'The City of Smiles'. It also has one of the youngest population averages in Europe - which is partly attributed to the large number of students who live here. This means, if you are a night owl, you can expect a lively nightlife with varied venues from cocktail bars, to live music venues and night clubs. However, don't bank on having too much change at the end of the evening – the food and drink prices here are among the highest in Europe, especially if you head to one of the bars or restaurants by the river! However, if you do enjoy dining out, you will be spoilt for choice as Aarhus offers anything from upmarket restaurants, to seafood restaurants, pizza and pasta places.
Meanwhile, in terms of the economy, the city is dominated by the port, which is one of the 100 biggest container ports in the world. The port handles an average of 12 million tonnes of cargo a year; most of the exports are made up of agricultural produce and coal and iron are among the main imports.
Many people moving to an overseas destination are worried about the possible language barrier. However, you needn't be in Aarhus as English is widely spoken. That said, if you have the time, it is always well worth taking classes in the language of the country you move to because it helps you adapt to your new way of life. The University offers Danish courses, or you can learn at the Laerdansk language centre.
Removals to Aarhus, Denmark: Places to Visit
Whether you are visiting Denmark for the first time, or settling permanently in the city, Aarhus is full of fantastic architecture and there are plenty of places to visit including art galleries, museums and other fascinating attractions.
A must see is the open air museum of Den Gamle By, The Old Town, which is a collection of 75 historic buildings showing Danish architecture through the ages. Some museum staff take on various roles such as post master and blacksmith etc, so you can get the feel of what life was really like in years gone by.
Another place to visit is Aarhus Cathedral, which, at 93m, is the longest cathedral in Denmark. It also has the tallest tower in Denmark, which stands at 96m high. The tower was struck by lightning in the mid-17th century, which set it alight and damaged some of the bells. However, the interior of the 800 year old church remained virtually unscathed and, if you are visiting the cathedral, you can still see the amazing fresco paintings and an intricate altar piece.
If you enjoy art, head to the ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, the main art museum which houses 9,000 works of art. It's also a city landmark and offers amazing views across Aarhus through its multi-coloured windows, the 'Rainbow Panorama'.
