What do people like (and dislike) about Aarhus?
When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Aarhus, they replied...
"Expats and digital nomads living in Aarhus, often appreciate the city's high quality of life, which includes excellent healthcare, education, and public services. They also enjoy the city's vibrant cultural scene, with numerous museums, galleries, and events throughout the year. Aarhus is known for its beautiful architecture, green spaces, and picturesque waterfront, making it an attractive place to live and work. The city's efficient public transportation system, including buses and trains, is another aspect that expats and digital nomads appreciate. Aarhus is also a bike-friendly city, with many dedicated bike lanes and a strong cycling culture. The city's size is manageable, making it easy to navigate and explore. Aarhus is home to a thriving startup scene and a strong business environment, offering opportunities for networking and professional growth. The presence of Aarhus University also contributes to the city's international atmosphere and diverse population. However, there are some challenges that expats and digital nomads may face while living in Aarhus. One of the most common complaints is the high cost of living, particularly when it comes to housing, dining out, and entertainment. The city's weather can also be a downside, with long, cold winters and relatively short summers. Another challenge for expats and digital nomads in Aarhus is the language barrier. While many locals speak English, Danish is the primary language used in daily life and work. This can make it difficult for non-Danish speakers to fully integrate into the community and access certain services. Finally, some expats and digital nomads may find the Danish work culture and social norms to be quite different from their home countries. This can take some time to adjust to and may require a willingness to adapt and learn about local customs and traditions," explained one expat living in Aarhus, Denmark.
