Observation tower on the water front

Go see the new observation tower in the Aarhus Ø city quarter on the water front. It is designed by Danish architect firm Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter.

A panoramic view 

You can climb the tower and enjoy a panoramic view of the city and the bay of Aarhus. The round apertures in the tower are observation openings which provide a 360-degree view and perspective on the entire surroundings.

Lots of activities at Bassin 7

The tower was donated by the local Salling Fondene charity fund and erected next to the city's new events centre Bassin 7 with open water swimming, cafés, a theatre, and many more upcoming activities at the current location of the Beach Lounge. In addition to functioning as an observation post, the 15-meter high tower is also a sculptural gem.
