With the city’s aim of being carbon neutral in 2030 actions toward sustainability are crucial – also when it comes to transportation – and the city offers various ways of getting efficiently around town with a clean conscience.
Walk or hop on a bike
Riding a bike or walking is by far the most sustainable way to get around in any city – and in Aarhus it can even be the fastest and most pleasant way. Here, everything is within reach, and walking or riding your bike between a conference venue, hotels and local attractions is therefore quite easy and convenient.
For instance, make good use of the walk from the venue to the hotel for a Walk & Talk-evaluation session. While using the time for transport efficiently, the participants get some fresh air and experience the unique atmosphere of the city.
Aarhus has more than 500 public bikes that can easily be used by everyone at a very reasonable price. This way you can grab a bike close to your hotel, ride it to your meeting and park it right outside at the bike station. All over town you will find bike tracks and streets that make it easy and safe to move around.

Aarhus Light Rail
Is walking not the obvious choice for the distance you need to go, the light rail, Letbanen, is a good, green option. It runs on electricity and emit far less CO2 than busses, trains and diesel fuelled cars do today. Besides being more sustainable, the light rail is an efficient way of getting around, as is rarely has to stop for a red light.
Did you know that the first light rail in Denmark is washed in rain water in order to save water? And that the light rail’s workshop has been constructed from a material that reduces the amount of NOx air-particles that are hazardous to our health?
