Overlooking Rådhusparken in the heart of Aarhus, the Aarhus City Hall is a functionalist building that’s become a symbol of the city. It was designed by the Danish architectural team of Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller in the late 1930s and is clad in grey marble sourced from Porsgrunn in Norway.
Marvel at the 60-metre-high tower of Aarhus City Hall, which wasn’t included in the original design but was added due to public pressure. Guided tours highlight the interior’s magnificent halls and hidden rooms, with the iconic Danish furniture designer, Hans Wegner, tasked with their decoration.
Wander through the City Council Chamber and the Wedding Chamber while admiring the oaken parquet floors, ceramic tiling and impressive wall paintings. Take time to explore the Kvindemuseet dedicated to the history of women in Denmark, then climb to the top of the tower for sweeping views across Aarhus and its sparkling bay.
The Aarhus City Hall is a five-minute walk from the Aarhus railway station or can be accessed by several bus routes that stop near the entrance. Aarhus Lufthavn is 35 minutes’ drive from the building and has flights to destinations across Europe.
