Aarhus is a dynamic city on the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. 315.000 people live in there and 1,2 million people live in the greater Aarhus Area.
Being a university city, it is the youngest in Denmark measured by average age, but historically one of the oldest.
For one day I managed to visit is The Downtown, The Botanical Garden and Den Gamle By.
The Botanical Garden is a green oasis. It is open to the public all the year round and is well worth a visit in all seasons of the year. I visited it on 14th of September 2013 and I was lucky with the lovely weather!
Den Gamle By - The Old Town Museum
is a National Open Air Museum of Urban History and Culture. It is a living and breathing experience of what it was like to live and work in a Danish market town, as it was in the old days.
