Meet Aarhus – the City of Smiles

Denmark is one of the world's leading destinations for international meetings, and Aarhus, located on the eastern coast of the Jutland peninsula, is Denmark's second largest city. Aarhus has a population of approximately 340,000 inhabitants. Over the past few years, Aarhus has become a popular host city for international scientific congresses and conferences, and is now among the top 75 destinations in the world on the ICCA ranking of international meeting destinations.

Aarhus is a university town, with the youngest urban population in Denmark. But it is also one of the oldest cities in the nation, founded in the Viking age. The vibrant mix of youthful energy and a rich history is what makes Aarhus special.
