Visit Aarhus Volunteering Capital and host of Sailing World Championships 2018

Whether you are on a short visit or plan a longer stay in Aarhus, there are plenty of fun and interesting possibilities for all ages to dive in to.

The Volunteering Capital of 2018

In 2018 Aarhus is the European Volunteering Capital. London, Lisbon and Barcelona have previously had this title and in 2017 is Sligo, in Ireland, the Capital of Volunteering.

The title is given each year to a European municipality which has been particularly notable in terms of volunteering. In Aarhus’s case, the jury emphasizes that Aarhus City Council has adopted a citizenship policy that you measure and follow up in the city.

It also highlights the integration that takes place between the municipality, the culture and the social welfare areas, where volunteers help to set the agenda on how municipalities and civil society can cooperate.

Hempel Sailing World Championships Aarhus 2018

When Aarhus hosts the Hempel Sailing World Championships in 2018 it will be for all 10 Olympic sailing classes plus Kitesurfing. It is going to be one of the largest sporting events ever in Denmark. During the event, Aarhus will be buzzing with excitement. Sailors from up against 100 nations will compete for Worlds medals and qualifying for the Olympics on the waves of Aarhus Bay. The new pier invites everyone to join the family-friendly activities. It will be a party for all ages and interests, with lots of action for both incarnated fans of sailing, and for those who are not yet familiar with the sport.

Stop by and feel the sea spray and the wind in the sails and join us in celebrating Aarhus, Denmark, The Sea and all of the great athletes.

Aarhus – European Capital of Culture 2017

In August 2012, Aarhus was designated European Capital of Culture 2017 by an international jury after an intensive selection process.

As European Capital of Culture 2017, Aarhus will celebrate what is both traditional and new within a wide spectrum of fields including art, theatre, dance, music, literature and the disciplines of cooking, architecture and design. We are creating Spectacle and Speculations – Celebrations, Contemplations and Provocations, and we are bringing the entire region together for a year of fun, festivities, fireworks and feasts.
