Aarhus River

Aarhus Aa under St Clemens Torv

The Aarhus (Danish: Aarhus Å) is a 40-kilometre (25 miles) long river or stream, in eastern Jutland, Denmark.

It flows through the large river valley of the Aarhus Ådal. The valley itself stretches from Silkeborg to the coastal city of Aarhus, but the river runs only through the easternmost parts.

The river drains a basin of 324 square kilometres (125 sq mi) in the eastern part of Søhøjlandet and discharges into the Bay of Aarhus which is an embayment of the Kattegat. It originates 54 metres (177 ft) above sea level in the swampy bogland of Astrup Mose close to Stilling-Solbjerg Lake, southwest of the city of Aarhus (56°6′ northern latitude, 10°9′ eastern longitude) and exits into Aarhus Harbour at 56°9′ northern latitude, 10°13′ eastern longitude. The river defines the border between Skanderborg and Aarhus Municipality during its first few kilometres. source: wikipedia
