(also Aarhus), a city and a port in Denmark, situated east of Jutland Peninsula, on Århus Bay, which opens into the Kattegat. Administrative center of the amt (county) of Århus; population, 119,600 (1971). Århus is a railroad junction and a commercial and industrial center. It has machine-building (equipment and refrigerators), oil-refining, chemical, textile, and food industries. The city is the site of a university.

Århus, one of Denmark’s oldest cities, was first mentioned in 948. The old city, which is situated on both shores of Århus Bay, is the site of a Romanesque-Gothic cathedral (13th to 15th centuries), the Romanesque-Gothic Church of Our Lady (late 11th through 15th centuries), and the old city hall (1857). Modern architecture in Århus includes the new city hall (1938–42, architects C. F. Møller and A. Jacobsen), E. Thomsen’s and E. Heiberg’s buildings, K. Nielsen’s monuments (1921–24), and the university complex. Århus is the site of the open-air Old Town Museum, which includes about 50 old houses, mostly framed structures from various regions of Denmark. The city also has an art museum, which houses modern Danish painting.
