It stands out, not in a good way, because of its modern structure. Compared to old beautiful buildings and the green park surrounding it. it is difficult to believe that this has garnered awards. Really?

Hoping to locate a tourist information center (it turned out there was none, or perhaps one existed but only during July and August), we stopped by the radhuset, famous as an example of then-edgy mid-20th-Century Danish architecture and for the fountain outside depicting a sow, drooling contentedly, and six piglets, one of them peeing. Inside, we learned that the radhus... More

The architecture of this town hall is modern both inside and outside. Admission is free and photography is permitted. For those who like modern architecture, the hall is worth a visit. It will only take a few minutes to see it. There is an excellent restaurant near it, the Radhus Cafe, which serves high quality traditional Danish food in very... More

Danish modern, down to the last detail. Superb example of Arne Jacobsen design, including the typeface used on all signage. Try to arrange a visit to the top of the tower. Great view of the city.

This is a really an ugly building, but beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Some people think otherwise but I get the impression that it's because it was built by two well know Danish architects. If you are around the center of Aarhus go see it and decide for yourself, but don't go there on purpose, you might... More

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

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
