Varna Palace in Marselisborg Forest
Aarhus

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.
