Aarhus City

Aarhus is the capital of the Jutland peninsula, and the second largest city in Denmark. The University in Aarhus is Denmarks second largest. Aarhus is both a metropolis and a village: it offers cultural activities, shopping, and commerce, but you can still reach the countryside within twenty minutes.

The town is located by the sea. At the harbour you find heavy cargo transport, small fishing boats and yachts, in a charming mix. The many parks are all pleasant, and the city has easy access to the woods to the north. To the south, the woods are bigger and less park-like.

Monday night the City of Aarhus is hosting a welcome reception for NordiCHI 2002 participants at the City Hall.
