    Highlights of The Concert Hall of Aarhus

    Apart from being home to fantastic live shows, The Concert Hall of Aarhus is also a small architectonic gem in itself. When you arrive for the evening show, the first thing that will strike you is the beautiful glass facade, which is most impressive in the evening when the foyer is bathed in golden light.

    The Concert Hall offers a total of nine stages and six halls, each arranged for their specific purpose. The Large Hall (Store Sal) has red padded seats, while the Symphonic Hall (Symfonisk Sal) has a more modern expression, with its light wood and grey panels, which can be adjusted to ensure excellent acoustics.
