Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark with a population of approximately 325,000. The culture is lively and young, mainly due to the city’s large student population (approx. 50,000).

Aarhus is an old city but still young at heart! The city was founded by the Vikings as an open trading post at the mouth of the river. Aarhus is an educational and cultural centre, and its very soul is a charming blend, combining the atmospheres of a provincial town and an active city, which will make you feel welcome and at home. Scattered around the city you will find many restaurants, bars and cafes, many of which are located at the river and suited for all kinds of budgets.

Aarhus is really a remarkable place and offers many attractions – such as the open-air museum “The Old Town”, Marselisborg Castle, Queen Margrethe II’s summer residence and Moesgaard Museum. Discover its delights for yourself. Most things are within walking distance and the city of Aarhus is the place where every wish can be fulfilled in fascinating and inspiring surroundings.

Ideally situated in its bay, fringed by beaches, forests and lush scenery, yet bustling with life, Aarhus offers an inspiring setting for the conference.

One of the major attractions in Aarhus is the Open Air Museum ‘Den Gamle By’. The 'Den Gamle By' (meaning ‘The Old Town’) is a unique attraction in Aarhus for the whole family to go on fascinating journey back in history. The museum is awarded the maximum three stars in the Michelin Travel Guide. Here you will meet people dressed and acting as folk at the end of the 19th century, and also as how people lived and worked in 1927. You can also take a walk through a town district from 1970s' Denmark, complete with streets, townhouses, shops, backyards, and workshops re-erected exactly as they stood in the past.
