Aarhus - Denmark
Partnership with Rostock since 1964
Having been rewarded the title of European Capital of Culture 2017, Aarhus had a spectacular opening ceremony. Six Viking ships were carried through the city by a procession of thousands of local citizens, while a giant light show illuminated the City Hall and other buildings of the city center.
The most interesting attractions in Aarhus are the ‚Den Gamle By‘ (The Old Town), a unique open-air museum which allows visitors to closely connect with history and the “Tivoli Friheden”, a theme park located in the beautiful Marselisborg Forest. The Business Region Aarhus is strongly focused on areas such as overall infrastructure, tourism and industrial activities.
