About Aarhus

History of Aaarhus

Founded in the early Viking Age, Aarhus is one of Denmark’s oldest cities. A Christian church was founded in Aarhus and it became a major religious center in Scandinavia. The church was expanded in the 11th century and dedicated to Saint Nicholas. The city’s fortifications grew in the 12th century and the construction of a new Aarhus Cathedral began in 1192. The church of St. Nicholas was also recognized as a cathedral. In the 16th century, Aarhus suffered after fires destroyed significant parts of the city. The city was occupied for two years by German troops during the Thirty Years’ War and later by Sweden during the Torstenson War. In 1830, a steamship link with Copenhagen was established for the first time. In 1849, Aarhus was occupied by German troops again but Danish control was soon restored. Jutland’s first railway linked Aarhus to Randers in the 1860s. The Aarhus Theater was constructed in 1900. The city’s population surpassed 50,000 in 1901 and the State Library of Aarhus was constructed in 1902. Aarhus hosted the National Expedition in 1909 and the city’s first democratically elected mayor took power in 1919. Aarhus University opened in 1928 and by 1940, the city’s population surpassed 100,000 for the first time. During the Second World War, Aarhus was occupied by Nazi Germany but was frequently bombed by the British and eventually liberated. The city grew during the post-war period and today has a population of more than 300,000 people.
