I am proud of my city.
Aarhus (Århus) is Denmark’s second largest city, but small-ish at just below 300,000 people. That doesn’t seem to limit us, though, even if it may have in the past.
This week, plans were unveiled for the development of the old harbour area. During the next couple of years a new neighbourhood will rise – literally – on the water, close to the old centre. The centrepiece will be Denmark’s tallest building at 142 metres, all designed by development consortium Keops Light House. It would be awesome to live there.
Aarhus has many strengths; one of its greatest is its world-class university, and especially the growing IT City of Katrinebjerg, with its very own Google R&D. Incidentally, this campus is where I do my studying.
You could also mention the thriving cultural scene, abundance of both classical and rhythmical music, and Aarhus Café Church 🙂
Bot most importantly, it’s just a great place to live.
