Try to get around townhall i Aarhus if you are here. Finished in 1941 (doesn't look that old outside) and made by Erik Møller and famous Arne Jacobsen. The tower wasn't on the original plan, and was put in by the city. Both exterior and interior is a classic danish gem and if you can get on a tour do... More

Well, some people don't like it but it doesn't cost anything to go by and see it. If you end up in Aarhus, you will do it anyways

Aristocratic builiding between modern danish design and classic architecture. Like a walk in the hall and look up at the lines.... The view to the music hall and Aros trough the tall windows is great.

Seriously, they couldn't have made it any less boring and depressing... the watch is always slow and the cement used was supposed to resemble the simplicity of scandinavian design but ruined it for me (as someone interested in scandinavian design and architecture)... the garden behind is nice but nothing special. I recommend spend your time in other places and gardens... More

As a local I must say that there is absolutely nothing special and beautiful about this building. If you are an architect or alike you might find it interesting, but I would say that 9/10 of visitors would just pass it by and say "okay there is a awkward building". A lot of other buildings (including the University) have far... More

The interior and exterior of the building is a real eye-sore. Built in a grey 70's communist style architecture that makes one think of Russia in the 70's. The interior of the structure is dirty as well. I'm not sure how this could even be categorized as an attraction

The new Town Hall was really quite ugly from the outside, and sleek scandanavian inside. Not worth the trip

Properly 60' archeture The building both in and out remindes of Alcatras...horrible! They moved a Jewish cemetary over the road(which is well worth a visit...if only to see the trees overtake the iron fence!) So on the top there a panoramic view of Aarhus and a lot of the surrounding countryside. Not to mention that there are 42 bells up... More

Everything was designed in perfect detail, from interior, furniture to outside. They have even designed new surveillance camera housings to fit the copper ashtrays.
