Not only is the library fascinating with great views, a super helpful group of librarians, and interesting exhibits and activities, it also has the Coolest, geekiest parking ever. The parking is worth a visit all by itself.

Dokk1 is a magnificent architectural building in the port of Aarhus not very far of the down town. Inside you can find a library, a TV chain...You can enjoy of a magnificent view of the port and the bay.
