Aahrus is the second largest city and the principal port of Denmark situated on the peninsula of Jutland.
The relatively large influx of young people and students creates a natural base for cultural activities and there are many cafes — around 500 in the city — as well as discoteques, cinemas, museums, amusement parks and various other venues of entertainment.
One major tourist attraction in Aarhus is The Old Town which is a collection of historic Danish buildings gathered from all around the country. The old town was recently ranked one of the 3 best tourist attractions in Denmark. Architecturally impressive sights include the 13th century cathedral in the centre of the city; Århus Domkirke is the tallest cathedral in Denmark.
It is common for tourist brochures and local politicians to refer to the town with the tongue‐in‐cheek slogan 'The worlds smallest big city' reflecting the fact that the city has everything a city needs while unquestionably not a metropolis.
