Sculpture by the Sea - Århus 2009

In 2000 a young Dane visited Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi Beach in Australia with his new Tasmanian girlfriend. He was inspired and dreamed about bringing the exhibition (and the girlfriend) to Denmark. The two people are now known as HRH Crown Prince Frederik and HRH Crown Princess Mary - and on the 5th of june 2009 they could open the exhibiton at the beaches south af Århus - with 60 sculptures, made by artist from Austalia, Denmark and several other countries, placed in the middle of the nature: on the beach, in the water and in the forest.

This is an overview of Aarhus

Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark - situated on the eastcoast of Jutland - surrounded by old forests to the north and south and newer one in the west and the bay, Arhus Bugten, with a busy harbour and lovely beaches to the east.

A big university  and more than 20 other educational and research institutions resulting in almost every fifth of the inhabitants being students makes Aarhus a young and lively city.

You find a lot of cafes, bars, restaurants, etc. in the center.  And a rich variety cultural institions like theaters, music halls, galleries and museum. Year around there are many events, concerts and festivals - Aarhus (Festuge) Festival  in the first week of september is among the largest cultural events in Scandinavia and showcases both local, national and international artists.

Aarhus is also and old city. People have been living here by the coast and the "river" Aarhus Aa for many centuries.

To sense the history you can go to Den Gamle By (The Old Town) and experience what it was like to live and work in a Danish market town in the old days - or you can go to the archaeological and ethnographic Moesgaard Museum.
