Pretty much all of Aarhus can be seen from the top of the roof of the CF Møller architect studio offices at the Europaplads square near the harbour. In fact, the building is one of only two in the city that comes close to being able to call itself a skyscraper – and the other, the Prism, doesn’t have a flat roof, so this is a rare chance to see town from on high.

Binoculars and telescopic equipment will be provided by a local company, allowing you to get a great view of the buildings down below, and a soundtrack will guide you through the city’s history – from Viking times to the modern day.

Viewing sessions take place from 3–4pm from 17–21 July and again from 24–28 July. Spaces are limited though and must be pre-booked – you can do so through the event’s website (Danish only).
