Århus, one of Denmark’s oldest cities, was first mentioned in 948.

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.

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.
