In spring 2020 Radisson Red Aarhus, the new creative brand from the Radisson Hotel Group inspired by music, art and fashion, will open in Aarhus with 78 rooms, a restaurant, gym, and a meeting space. Located in the centre of the city it will be close to both the retail street, main attractions and the historic latin quarter with its numerous bars and cafes. The main railway station is within walking distance and there will be easy access to the airport.
The Aarhus waterfront will also become home to a new landmark conference hotel. The complex will include a 29,000 m2 hotel with 500 rooms. The meeting facilities will seat 2,000 conference-goers or a total of 3,500 concert guests. Located on ground level, the conference facilities will include a waterfront restaurant. The new conference hotel, to be operated by Scandic, will be designed by Danish star architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG) and will include an exterior public walkway covering the full height of the building with gardens and amazing sea views.
Also new in Aarhus in 2020 is BOOK1 from the Danish Brøchner Hotel group with a new take on old style hostel accommodation. In their first project outside Copenhagen the 396-bed property is based on the premise that you shouldn’t have to stay in uninspiring surrounds even in a hostel. Opening in March 2020 close to the ARoS Museum in Mølleparken in the centre of the city, the former library mixes minimalist Scandinavian styling with cool industrial steel and rooms range from shared bunk dorms for up to 14 people with shared bathrooms to private twin or double rooms with private bathrooms. There are even four hostel suites with private bathrooms for up to 4 people. The hostel is aimed at younger travellers and uses innovative digital solutions such as an app that will allow guests to chat with staff and open their rooms.
Less than an hour south of Aarhus in the town of Horsens, the town’s iconic Jørgensens Hotel is set to open in 2020 after a major refurbishment. The hotel is located in the majestic Lichtenbergs Palace from 1744, and the reopened hotel will maintain its period charm and personality. All the rooms will be individually decorated and have all the modern amnesties need for a relaxing vacation.
