Denmark’s second-largest town, Aarhus (population: 200,000), has a lively student population and an excellent range of bars and restaurants. It also has a number of interesting sights, including the impressive cathedral and the quirky little Museum of Modern Art.
Aarhus is located in Jutland, which is Denmark’s most sparsely populated region. The area around Aarhus is known as Central Jutland, and it includes the towns of Skanderborg, Viborg and Silkeborg.
The Danish capital, Copenhagen, lies to the south of Denmark. It is a city with a rich history and culture, which has been shaped by its location on the Baltic Sea coast.
The city was founded in 1167 as a trading post for merchants from England and Germany. The name “Copenhagen” comes from the Latin word “cophagus”, meaning “beak”. This refers to the shape of the harbour where the town is located. The bay is shaped like a horseshoe, with the entrance at its narrowest point, and the two arms are called North Arm and South Arm.
The harbour was originally used for fishing but has been developed as an industrial port since the late 19th century. It is now home to many large companies including Royal Mail, British Steel, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and the BBC.
