Aarhus, Denmark

My first postcard from Denmark, ever! And it’s a nice one too!

Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark. The principal port of Denmark, Aarhus is on the east side of the peninsula of Jutland in the geographical center of Denmark. I

n 2010, a majority of the city council voted for a name change from Århus back to Aarhus, and the renaming came into effect on January 1, 2011.  Mayor Nicolai Wammen argued that the Aa spelling would strengthen the city’s international profile, help private enterprise and make it easier to access Aarhus on the internet. The Aarhus spelling has, however, always had some use in non-Scandinavian languages.
