The Varna Palace is now used for meetings, konferences and parties. It is situated in the beautiful Marselisborg Forest south of Aarhus. It was build in 1908-1909 in connection with the Land exhibition at Aarhus in 1909. It was designed by architect Eggert Aachen (1853-1913).

It got its name after the Bulgarian town and fortress of Varna on the Black Sea coast. This is due to a previous owner of the Marselisborg estate baron Christian Gersdorff had participated in the Russian military on the Black Sea coast, and in the early 1800s gave the name to a water turbine that was there at that time.

You find a lot of cafes, bars, restaurants, etc. in the center.  And a rich variety cultural institions like theaters, music halls, galleries and museum. Year around there are many events, concerts and festivals - Aarhus (Festuge) Festival  in the first week of september is among the largest cultural events in Scandinavia and showcases both local, national and international artists.

Aarhus is also and old city. People have been living here by the coast and the "river" Aarhus Aa for many centuries.

To sense the history you can go to Den Gamle By (The Old Town) and experience what it was like to live and work in a Danish market town in the old days - or you can go to the archaeological and ethnographic Moesgaard Museum.
