Aarhus city center houses many cozy coffee bars and art galleries, all of which are aware of aesthetics and masters in creating an inviting atmosphere. We will walk through town and stop by some of the most special shops and galleries, where we will get inspiration about SPACE DESIGN and SERVICE DESIGN – something that we can bring back to our home libraries. The shopkeepers will tell us about their experiences in displaying the merchandise in an inspiring way and offering quality service to their customers.

 We will end the walk at a coffee bar that sells coffee as well as books and wine.   


Fee: 200DKK including tapas and wine

Serena Borsello from Aarhus will guide the tour.
