Aarhus was founded by the Vikings some 1300 years ago and has been an important trading city ever since. However, it was not until the 1900’s that Aarhus really started growing and soon became Denmark’s second largest city after the capital of Copenhagen.

Dubbed the cultural capital of Denmark, Aarhus has been on the forefront of defining Danish art and culture for years, which is also shown in the city’s architecture and in the up-and-coming designer shops across Aarhus.
