Cultural capital Aarhus says hello to Stockholm

SAS opens Stockholm-Aarhus route on October 25
Two Scandinavian cities move closer together when SAS opens its new route between Stockholm and Denmark’s second city of Aarhus on October 25. Officials in Aarhus say the move is well-timed as it prepares for European Capital of Culture events during 2017.
In the coming months Aarhus “will prepare to welcome thousands of new visitors from the Swedish capital with a grand program of arts, culture and experiences,” the city said in a statement this morning.
“For a whole year we will bid on spectacular events, unique experiences and magical moments,” said Rebecca Matthews, who is in charge of Europe’s Cultural Capital Aarhus in 2017, who added that she was delighted that Swedes now have the opportunity to fly there direct.
In recent years, Aarhus has distinguished itself as something of a cultural metropolis with a creative environment, museums and festivals. A Monet exhibition recently opened at the ARoS art museum, while on the roof of the building a circular walkway above the city and harbour called Your Rainbow Panorama by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is a popular attraction.
Add the botanical gardens with its tropical plants, three Michelin restaurants and Denmark’s youngest population and highest concentration of students, Matthews says that Aarhus has plenty to offer visitors.
