Aarhus and other AU locations

In Denmark, you will find that the distances are short, which makes it possible to combine the atmosphere of a buzzing city life with the relaxation of the beautiful Danish countryside and seaside. Clean beaches and green forests are rarely more than half an hour’s drive away, and the towns and cities provide numerous cultural and artistic offerings. Since Denmark is relatively flat, it is common to travel around urban areas by bicycle.
