Aarhus is more than a dynamic and colourful Danish city.

It's also a farm.

With initiatives such as urban bees,

growing oyster mushrooms in upcycled coffee grounds

and restaurants growing their own ingredients

just a stone's throw from where they are served,

Aarhus has a distinctively forward-thinking food culture.

Welcome to Aarhus.

Right here, in the Latin Quarter of Aarhus,

you'll find Gastrom.

One of the most distinguished restaurants in the region.

Sren and William, owners and chefs at Gastrom,

grow their own seasonal crops in the Gastrom garden.

A mere 15 minute drive away from where they're later prepared and served.

Down at the harbour

the "Fra Grums til Gourmet" association

has found a rather interesting way to upcycle old coffee grounds,

by using them to grow oyster mushrooms.

Mushrooms which are delivered, freshly picked, to local restaurants.

And finally -

if you cast at glance skyward, above the Aarhus skyline,

you'll find one of the most important contributors to our ecosystem.

Up on the roof of the Scandic Hotel Aarhus City, you'll find hundreds of thousands of industrious bees

creating 200 kilos a year of fresh, local honey for the hotel restaurant.

Directly from beehive to breakfast.

So come by Aarhus and experience just how fresh food can be.
