What do I need to know before moving to Aarhus?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Aarhus, they said:

"Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and is known for its vibrant culture and beautiful scenery. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Aarhus is higher than in other parts of Denmark, so budgeting is important. It is also important to note that the weather in Aarhus can be quite unpredictable, so it is important to be prepared for all types of weather. Expats should also be aware that the Danish language is the official language of Aarhus, so it is important to learn some basic Danish before moving to the city. Additionally, Aarhus is a very bike-friendly city, so it is recommended to bring a bike or purchase one upon arrival. Finally, Aarhus is a great place to meet people and make friends, so expats should take advantage of the many social activities and events available in the city," said one expat who made the move to Aarhus.
