Meeting point: Dokk1 Information Desk at 09:00

Experience the Danish National Exhibition that took place in Aarhus in 1909 and showcased the most outstanding architecture. The Tuborg arch of triumph and the model for Danish train stations – which was later implemented all over Denmark – were some of the projects featured at the exhibition. We’ll visit Tangkrogen, the venue of the National Exhibition, and will travel back in time using 3D technology.

The Old Town – the world’s first open air museum
Later we’ll go to The Old Town (Den Gamle By). It’s one of the tangible results of the National Exhibition – and a chance to see, smell, touch and visit some of the buildings, we’ve experienced using 3D technology earlier on the tour, e.g. The Mayor’s House. The Old Town is also the world’s first open air museum and Denmark’s only three-star museum (’worth the journey in itself’) outside Copenhagen area according to Guide Michelin. Finally we’ll visit CAVI, the University Center for interaction design and participatory IT.

We reserve the right to alterations and surprises
