Hi Backpackers, did you know that you can get reasonably priced accommodation in Aarhus?

The peninsula of Jutland lies in the western part of Denmark and is also known as the Danish mainland. It is the only part of Denmark that is not an island and connects with northern Germany near Schleswig.

Jutland is around 340 km from top to bottom and covers an area of over 29,000 km2 – two-thirds of the total area of Denmark. Almost half of the Danish population live in this part of the country.  Aarhus is located in the middle of Jutland.

Aarhus is Denmark's second largest city and Jutland's largest, with a population of around 260,000. Here, Denmark's history can be traced all the way back to the middle of the 8th century. Often referred to as the "City of Smiles", it has since become a cultural Capital of sorts as Danish youths flock here to study, innovate and start businesses.

Aarhus provides the perfect blend of modern city life and traditional Danish values, which makes it an attractive destination for both youths and grown-ups alike.

Learn more about the City of Smiles here.
