Opening Ceremony at Aarhus City Hall..

The 2014 Prince Henrik Silver Trophy will officially be opened at a reception hosted by the Mayor of Aarhus, Mr Jacob Bundsgaard.

The reception will take place at the beautiful Aarhus City Hall.

The Aarhus City Hall it self is an an architectural masterpiece. The City Hall is created by world famous architect Arne Jacobsen with all interior furniture designed by Hans J Wegner.

Built in 1937-1942, Aarhus City Hall is located in the city centre surrounded by parkland. The City Hall consists of three staggered building elements. The main block facing City Hall Square houses the representative functions and council chambers. The long, tall Panopticon wing is the administrative block. And the third section is a low wing of offices.

The design and style reflect Nordic modernism, with organic lines that soften the business-like, constructive design. The outside of the concrete construction is covered with sheets of Norwegian marble. Inside, brass and wood make an elegant impression.

The reception will take place Sunday, the 15th June 2014 at 17.00 followed by a BarBQ at the Marselisborg Yacht Club at the courtesy of the Harboe Breweries.

Invitational only.
