The History of Aarhus Central Food Market

Aarhus Central Food Market is breathing new life into the old, historic Aarhus Hall

“I remember clearly how, in my youth, Aarhus Hall buzzed with life and had the finest dance restaurant in the city.
The Hall was forgotten about for many years, but it was actually designed by C.F. Møller. Previously, it was the setting for the likes of Holiday
on Ice, a rock concert with The Who, six-day bicycle races, and jazz names such as Josephine Baker and Fats Waller.

When it opened in 1938, the dance restaurant guests ate 300 lobsters and 50 lambs – so now’s
the time once again for the Hall to be all about gastronomy and food-loving guests.
