Aarhus City Hall

The listed City Hall of Aarhus (Aarhus Rådhus) is unlike most other Danish city halls with its marble-plated façade and its imposing 60-metre-tall tower, visible throughout many parts of the city. A controversial project (to say the least) at the time of its inception, today Arne Jacobsen’s functionalist City Hall is liked by most Aarhusians and universally recognised as iconic of the city.

Be sure to have a look inside this landmark of modernism, which has been meticulously decorated throughout with custom lighting, floors, staircases and even door knobs. You can enter the City Hall freely, although certain areas are off-limits unless you book one of the regular guided tours (80 DKK, including tower ascension).
