What do I need to know about living in Aarhus?

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

"Before retiring in Aarhus, expats should be aware that the cost of living is relatively high compared to other parts of the country. Expats should also be aware that the weather in Aarhus can be quite cold and wet during the winter months. Additionally, expats should research the healthcare system in Denmark and make sure they have the necessary insurance coverage. Finally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs to ensure a smooth transition into their new home," remarked one expat who made the move to Aarhus.
