Even though the city is becoming a postgrad playground, it’s still a college town at heart since it’s home to more than 40,000 Aarhus University students. Start your weekend early by arriving on Thursday, when classes let out, to experience the best party night of the week. Begin the night with a zombie film or blaxplotation screening at indie house Slagtehal 3, a basement cinema series open only on Thursdays at 8 p.m., then have a glass of Champagne ($16) on the roof of the ARoS Museum for a nighttime view of the city. Afterward, stay up until morning at the D.J. mash-up party at Vestergrade 58, one of many nightclubs that keep the party going until 5 a.m.
