Important locations

AARHUS

With a population of more than 300,000, Aarhus (Tourist Office and City info) is the second largest city in Denmark, beautifully located between the sea, forests, and hills, on the eastern coast of Jutland, 300 km from Copenhagen (Denmark map). Being the cultural centre of Jutland, Aarhus is termed as an active city displaying Denmark's best music and entertainment scenes. One of the most visited places in Aarhus is Den Gamle By (The Old Town), which is an open-air museum that houses 75 restored buildings.

Aarhus is at heart Denmark's youngest city, because every fifth, or thereabouts, of its inhabitants is a student at one of the city's 25 educational and research institutions. At Aarhus University, where the workshop takes place, there are nearly 35,000 students. The characteristic yellow-brick buildings of the university are an architectural gem in the beautiful University Park which now almost extends into the Old Town centre. The city and the university form a unique symbiosis which has a special attraction on students and lecturers from all over the world.

Aarhus is also a city with clearly visible roots, founded, as it was, by the Vikings in the 8th century. The Vikings settled by the mouth of the river - at the very spot where the Cathedral today rises into the sky with its tower soaring to more than 90 metres in height. The Bispetorv square was also the centre of the town 1250 years ago, and is known today as the Vadestedet with its cafe-culture and outdoor life during the summertime.

You can fly either to Aarhus airport, Billund airport, or Kastrup airport in Copenhagen.

There are buses from Aarhus airport to Aarhus (Aarhus airport bus). The bus trip takes about 1 hour and costs 90 DKK.

There are buses from Billund airport to Aarhus (Billund airport bus). The bus trip takes about 1.5 hours and costs 180 DKK.

There are direct trains and trains with one change from the Kastrup airport in Copenhagen to Aarhus Station. Direct trains leave every hour at #:40 minutes from 4:40 in the morning until 21:40 in the night. There are also trains outside these times. The train trip takes about 3.5 hours. A one-way ticket costs 325 DKK, a round trip double. See train schedule for more information.

HOTEL

Hotel reservation is done together with the registration. Alternatives for the hotel are Atlantic (about 2 km from building 1324 at the campus of Aarhus University) and CABINN (about 1.7 km from building 1324 at the campus of Aarhus University). See more details in Registration.

HOSTEL

Aarhus Danhostel (youth hostel situated in Risskov in the Northern part of Aarhus not very far from the University) and Aarhus B&B (a bed and breakfast in an old farmhouse also situated in Risskov) both have fairly cheap rooms for students. The rooms cannot be reserved through the KongresKompagniet, but Aarhus Danhostel has an online booking system and the B&B have an e-mail for reserving rooms.

You can also buy a "klippekort" - a card valid for 10 bus rides. The price for this card is DKK 115 so there is usually money to save here.
