About Aarhus City Hall:
The City Hall was designed by the renowed Danish architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller and built between 1938 and 1941. The City Hall is described as a major work in Danish modernism. The characteristic City Hall Tower with the big clock is 60 meters tall and houses 48 bells that chime every day. The exterior of the City Hall is clad in Norwegian marble and the inventory and furniture inside is from the 1930s and primarily designed specifically for the Aarhus City Hall by the Danish furniture architect Hans J. Wegner - even door handles and key holes are designed specifically for the City Hall.

The City Hall houses the 31-member City Council and is also used for public events such as concerts, weddings, receptions, and exhibitions.

About Centralværkstedet:
Located in the center of Aarhus, right next to the main station, is Centralværkstedet. With its 16.000 m2, a beautiful setting, and an incredible history, Centralværkstedet gives the best opportunities for a great evening in the company of colleagues from all over the world. Originally Centralværkstedet served as the main workshop for the national danish railway services (DSB), which resonates in the premises of today and gives the venue a very urban and raw – yet very charming -atmosphere.

Centralværkstedet was built in 1862, imploying 1850 people at its highest in 1949. The place was partly in function as a workshop until 2009, where it was finally shut down. Today Centralværkstedet is owned by Comwell, and hosts everything from concerts to weddings.
