Went on a guided tour today. Joan the guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Building is well worth a look around due to its history and architectural significance.

This building was spared from damage in the war - it has been loningly cared for over the years preserving the architect's original design intentions.

I was doing some "business" outside- as there are no public toilets anywhere near. A policeman gave me a fine of 500 krone! I'm trying to fight the charge because there is no clear signage to indicate that this is s municipal building and not a toilet. FYI- "rad" does not mean the same thing in Danish

This has seriously got to be one of the most unusual and unattractive Town Halls I have ever seen. Whenever we saw it, wondered what the heck was the architect thinking. At least different enough to talk about.

It stands out, not in a good way, because of its modern structure. Compared to old beautiful buildings and the green park surrounding it. it is difficult to believe that this has garnered awards. Really?

Hoping to locate a tourist information center (it turned out there was none, or perhaps one existed but only during July and August), we stopped by the radhuset, famous as an example of then-edgy mid-20th-Century Danish architecture and for the fountain outside depicting a sow, drooling contentedly, and six piglets, one of them peeing. Inside, we learned that the radhus... More

The architecture of this town hall is modern both inside and outside. Admission is free and photography is permitted. For those who like modern architecture, the hall is worth a visit. It will only take a few minutes to see it. There is an excellent restaurant near it, the Radhus Cafe, which serves high quality traditional Danish food in very... More

Danish modern, down to the last detail. Superb example of Arne Jacobsen design, including the typeface used on all signage. Try to arrange a visit to the top of the tower. Great view of the city.
