Aarhus Ø is the newest part of Aarhus
On Aarhus Ø, architects have been given free rein, with new and modern architecture popping up and blending in with the city's existing architecture and environments. The distinctive Isbjerget building has already become an icon at the entrance to Aarhus, along with another architectural gem, Lighthouse. The AARhus building also stands impressively as an icon for the neighbourhood.
Don't miss the new Aarhus Ø city quarter, an area full of vibrancy and activity:
The Market Hall Nicolinehus is a food market located on a gastronomic journey. With food from all over the world, you can enjoy everything from dumplings and falafel to oysters and smørrebrød.
In July and August you can go for a swim or hang out at the new Harbor Bath, a vibrant meeting point and oasis. The Harbor Bath is designed by the famous Danish architect Bjarke Ingels Group BIG. The triangular floating complex comprises a rectangular 50-metre-long swimming pool, a circular diving pool, square children's pools and two saunas. Take a walk on the elevated plan walkway, which doubles as a viewing platform overlooking the pools and water beyond. The promenade deck is open 24 hours a day throughout the year.
There are lots and lots of new things going on in Aarhus Ø, and it also has its very own observation tower. You can climb the tower and enjoy a panoramic view of the city and the bay of Aarhus.
Sea swimming has become the new black in Aarhus. Once you are smitten by open sea swimming it is a habit which is hard to let go of. The swimming course is for sea swimmers.
