History[edit | edit source]

Århus County is a former county of Denmark on the Jutland peninsula. It was created in 1970 by the fusion of the Aarhus, Randers and Skanderborg counties. The county was abolished effective 1 January 2007, when almost all of it merged into Region Central Jutland. A very small portion was merged into Region North Jutland. At the time of its abolishment, more than 20,000 people worked for the county.
