Brutalist concrete Town Hall in Aarhus
Sep 2021
Walking up from the hotel, came across the Radhuset, the brutalist concrete Town Hall of Aarhus.
Nicely weathered with age now, it is very striking.
Hard to miss if you are in town.

it's kind of ugly, but very memorable and distinctive

I like to see the central clocks in cities because they show the style of the town - and this one is certainly much more individual compared to the older-styled ones in most of Denmark. Go on the guided tour - worth it.

Pretty city hall. Beautiful garden.
May 2019 • Solo
The City Hall is a rather newer building, having been built in 1938. It was designed by the famous Danish architects, Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller and is considered a masterpiece of Danish functionalism, made completely of gray Norwegian marble. There is a beautiful clock tower, which I could see from my window. The clock tower is no longer open to visitors, but the inside of the building is, if you are there at the right time, which it seems I never was.

At the back of the City Hall is a lovely park, part of which I could also see from my window. One morning when I was up early due to my jet lag, I grabbed my camera and walked around the park. I went towards the City Hall and then up a cobbled staircase and through a small tunnel up to the walkway lined with linden trees. And that walkway led to a small round plaza also surrounded by a circle of linden trees with a statue in the center. There were also beech and magnolia trees and bright yellow and red and purple rhododendron flowers blooming, adding color to the green.

As I walked around the park, I realized there were more and more statues, similar to the one in the center. There were four in all, all of female figures, called Girl (Pigen), Waking Woman (Vagnende Kvinde), The Fated (Den Svangre) and Atalanta (Atalante). Although they look similar to each other, each was sculpted by a different artist.

Remarkable Arne Jacobsen building boasting much of the original furniture and fittings. Lovely banisters, desks, lighting and a life-affirming mural.

Every lover of design or architecture must see this treasure.
Aug 2018 • Couples
Build in 1941 and designed by the world famous Arne Jacobsen, this city hall is fabulous from the outside but even more so from the inside. Hans Wegner did all the furniture and lighting, and it is all still there, perfectly kept. A real treasure and a fest for every lover of design and architecture. They have guided tours now and then, and if you want to see the lovely wedding room or the council hall, or the view from the bell tower, this is the only way.

We had a guided tour in the townhall saturday. Most impressive interior, architecture and history. We also visited the belltower, when the bells started chiming! The guide was very knowledgeable with histories about the design, construction etc.

Feast of Crocuses
Apr 2018 • Couples
This time the Crocuses spring out. Get your camera out and get some great poses surrounded by pool of flowers. Lilac and white, what a magnificient contrast. Having said that, there are few yellow ones trying to muscle in on the sceen. Keep up the good work, Municipal workers to keep them at bay. :)

Wow - this is the sexiest public building. So beautiful and a calm environment. Open to visitors, school trips, and citizens.

This is still working as the town hall but its open to the public. Its a bit of a masterpiece by the famous designer Arne Jacobsen. Flooring and details are amazing.

Interesting Architecture
Sep 2017 • Couples
As with all Town Halls everywhere, it is not a tourist site but open to the public. Outside, the building is modern so take a picture. Inside is nothing special so you will only stay at the site for a few minutes.
