Welcome to Aarhus -
WORLD'S SMALLEST BIG CITY
Århus, the capital of the
provinces, has all the atmosphere of a big city. Cultural events take
place throughout the year, and Århus is known internationally as a
living music venue. Århus is full of space, light and air with its
network of atmospheric pedestrian-only streets, charming squares, narrow
alleys and green parks. The river, Århus Å, winds its way through the
heart of the city and can be enjoyed to the full at the city's new
meeting point "vadestedet", that was the old ford.
Prices for refreshments are extremely high at this place.)
Århus is the biggest
shopping centre in Jutland, with over 400 specialist shops, supermarkets
and big department stores, all within an area of one square kilometre.
"Strøget" a pedestrian
precinct. A walk down the High Street pedestrian precinct, where trams
once ran, opens the door to buying anything your heart desires. At one
end of "Strøget" you have the railway station and in the other end
"Store Torv", dominated by the great medieval Cathedral.
