Musikhuset Aarhus, Aarhus

Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Musikhuset Aarhus (Aarhus Concert Hall) is a large concert hall complex in Aarhus, Denmark. Located in the city centre, Musikhuset is Aarhus' main venue for music and with seating for more than 3,600 people in total, it is the largest concert hall in Scandinavia. Musikhuset Aarhus was designed by Kjær & Richter and built in 1979-1982, commissioned by Aarhus Municipality.
The surroundings are designed by landscape architect Sven Hansen. In front of the main glass foyer is the Concert Hall Park (Musikhusparken), a sculpture and parterre garden of boxwood with flowers, fountains and small seclusive corners with benches. A recreational lawn connects the park area with the City Hall Park. Between the concert halls and the adjacent ARoS art museum is a cobblestone amphitheatre hosting outdoor events and gatherings throughout the year.

  • Nice concert. Friendly staff. Great experience. Good atmosphere.
  • Worst seats I've sat in for years, we actually left early because of the seats. The Staff at the bar ignored me and just stood around talking and doing odd jobs for awhile before serving (very typical in Denmark but I expect more at a high class venue). They were however pleasant and did offer alternatives when a problem arose, but you expect other staff members to interrupt the one serving you in McDonald's, not a place like this. I won't be going back, unfortunately a typical Aarhus experiance, big city promice, small town delivery.
  • If you like jazz or soul music that is one of the spots. Also great design...
  • I have been trapped in here for the past couple of weeks but honestly I don't mind it. I would give it a five stars but the lack of exits really drags the rating down a bit
  • Nice service at the bar/cafe
