Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark. It has a population of over 300,000 and is located in the middle of the country, making it an ideal base for exploring other Danish cities.
Aarhus is known as “The City of Smiles”, thanks to its inhabitants’ friendly nature. The city also boasts a lot of modern architecture–it was awarded European Capital of Culture in 2017 for its efforts to preserve historic buildings while still embracing new styles and trends.
Aarhus is a great place to visit in the spring and summer, when you can enjoy its numerous parks and outdoor cafés. The city also has many museums, including the ARoS Art Museum and Den Gamle By (The Old Town). There are plenty of shops and restaurants in Aarhus as well.
Odense is a city in Denmark, with a population of about 200,000. It’s known as the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen and has been called “Denmark’s most beautiful town.”
The city was founded in 988 AD by King Sweyn Forkbeard (who also conquered England), who had his palace built there. The city remained an important center for trade until the 12th century when it went into decline due to political instability and raids from pirates along the coast of Jutland (the peninsula that makes up most of mainland Denmark).
After that, the city had a period of growth, thanks to the King’s Castle. It was later destroyed by Swedish troops in 1658 and rebuilt in 1788 by King Frederick V.
The second largest city in Denmark, Aalborg has a population of around 180,000 and is known as “Capital of Jutland.” It’s located on the Limfjord and has some lovely architecture that makes it an attractive place to visit.
The city is also home to Aalborg University, which has around 22,000 students.
The city’s airport is located just south of the city, and it’s also a popular destination for cruise ships that stop in Aalborg on the way to Norway. The city has plenty of other attractions, including museums, parks and shopping centers.
Esbjerg is the main city in Southern Jutland, and it has a long history that stretches back hundreds of years. The port city has been known for its fishing and shipping industry since its founding as a small fishing village in the early 1800s. Today, Esbjerg continues to be important for trade thanks to its large harbour which serves as an entry point for goods from all over Europe into Denmark’s interior regions.
The city was also home to one of Denmark’s largest oil refineries until 2012 when production was moved elsewhere due to dwindling demand from customers worldwide; however this hasn’t stopped people from visiting Esbjerg since there are plenty more things to do here than just visit an oil refinery! In fact, many people come here specifically because they want some time away from work – whether that means relaxing at one of our beaches or hiking through nearby nature reserves like Ulfborg-Hjemmet Forest Park or Skovmose Forest Park (both within 30 km).
Helsingor (Helsingborg) is the oldest city in Denmark and was founded in 1160. It’s located on the island of Zealand, which is the largest island in Denmark. The city is also a port city, so visitors can take advantage of its location to explore nearby attractions like Copenhagen or Malmo.
The Kronborg Castle sits overlooking Helsingor from across a bay and offers stunning views of both land and sea–it even inspired Shakespeare’s Hamlet!
Skagen, North Jutland
Skagen is a small fishing village in North Jutland and famous for its beautiful beach and for its artists. It’s a popular tourist destination and has a large population of artists, who come to paint the spectacular scenery.
The village has a large population of artists and is known for its beautiful beach, which is popular with tourists. It’s also the setting for much of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale “The Magic Mirror”.
Fredericia, Central Jutland (Fyn)
Fredericia is a city in the middle of Jutland, Denmark. It’s located on the river Gudenåen and has been an important trade centre since medieval times. The city’s oldest buildings are from 1666; it was founded by King Frederik III as the seat for his new royal province.
The old town contains several museums and other attractions like Fredericia Castle (dating back to 1420), which offers guided tours during summertime; Skanderborg Museum; Den Gamle By (Old Town); Stiftsmuseumet (Provincial Museum).
You’ll also find plenty of restaurants serving traditional Danish cuisine such as smørrebrød sandwiches or frikadeller meatballs!
Ribe, West Jutland (Vestjylland)
Ribe is the oldest town in Denmark and one of its most beautiful. It’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the place where Danish was born; Ribe Cathedral has been around since at least 948 CE when it was built on top of an even older church. The old town center still has many medieval buildings that date back to this time period, including plenty of churches and museums (like Ribe Museum).
Ribe is located along the banks of Fjorden Århus Vig, which means “Aarhus Bay.” This body of water separates Jutland from Zealand (Sjælland). While there are plenty more reasons why you should visit Ribe besides its historical significance alone–it’s home to many restaurants and shops–but we’ll let you discover those for yourself!
