Aarhus – City of Knowledge
Why are danish universities so good, and what makes Aarhus a good place to study?
Aarhus is the danish city with the liveliest population and the highest IQ! This dynamic pearl of a city is located on the east coast of Jutland facing Kattegat and it is home to a university with about 30.000 students. Their joie de vivre and eagerness and youthful energy evidently leaves its mark on the atmosphere and face of the city.
We will see how and why while walking across the most beautiful campus in the country, the Universitetsparken in Aarhus. Until the nineteenthirties, the area was taken up by allotments. At that time the landscape designes worked a small miracle and the beautiful buildings were designed by the world renowned architects from C. F. Møllers tegnestue. The result was spectacular – but by and by the university grew, however, buildings were expanded and new ones were built. Finally a decision had to be reached, to either bulid more or keep the trees and hills, the small lakes and the brook – and consequently to move some of the institutes elsewhere. Some academic activities had to move to a new home.
We will also visit some parts of these new academic areas. The tour starts in front of the Institute for Geoscience, we wil start by traversing the original Universitetsparken and also visit some of the newer parts of the complete Campus.

Historic Vestergade in the Hidden Back Yards
Vestergade, West Street, is one of the oldest streets in the city of Aarhus. It dates back to the Viking Age around 900 AD.
The street was then outside of the city walls and the city within the walls was mainly a royal fortification, naval base and a port for shipping goods to far away ports. Presumably the oldest building in Aarhus, Vor Frue Kirke, The Church of Our Lady, with its crypt dates back to around 1,000 AD and it is located in Vestergade. During the middle ages it became part of a Dominican convent, or a Black Friar convent, as it was also called. It became the hospital for the leppers of the city in the middle ages.
Between the 16th and the 19th centuries Vestergade became the centre for trade in Aarhus with a total of 17 merchant houses in Vestergade alone, the highest concentration of merchant houses in any street in Aarhus at the time. Some of these half-timpered buildings are preserved to this day and on this walk we will go into their hidden and picturesque back yards, where you can still see traces of their original purposes and of the uses of later times, where there were artisan shops and factories in the back yards of the inner cities.
The walk takes 1-2 hours according to your preferences and shorter tours of Vestergade is also available.
