Denmark’s cool – you know that. But what of life beyond Copenhagen? Well, head to the canal town of Aarhus – the country’s second largest city and a place currently buzzing. It’s youthful – 16 per cent of the population of 330,000 are students – and an alluring combination of architecture, art and brilliant Nordic food. Make sure to grab a free city bike to check out AROS and Moesgaard museums, with foodie pit stops at Frederikshøj, Nordisk Spisehus, Kähler Villa Dining, Substans and Restaurant Domestic. Then crash (figuratively) at Hotel Oasia.
