5. Check out new and old architecture
In recent years spectacular buildings have emerged several places throughout the city making the architecture an essential part of many attractions. The Moesgaard Museum is emerging out of the hillside and is an absolute must-see for lovers of architecture.
The city’s library and cultural centre DOKK1 is an award-winning building with a sublime location right on the waterfront. The area known as Aarhus Ø is the newly developed area of the city, where you will find spectacular buildings like the Iceberg, AARhus, the harbour bath and the Salling Tower.
However, it is not only modern architecture that makes Aarhus special, the history of the city is also clearly reflected in the architecture. The Aarhus Theater, the old customs house and the royal summer resident Marselisborg Castle are just a few of the impressive buildings created by the architect Hack Kampmann.
The city’s university is also a must-see for architectural enthusiasts and behind this masterpiece is C.F. Møller. The iconic City Hall is a landmark of the city and designed by some of Denmark’s most well-known architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller.
