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.
