wotel with a splendid view of the Bay of Aarhus
Marselis Hotel in Aarhus opened in 1967. The grand opening took place on the land of Marselisborg where the Royal Family’s summer residence, the Marselisborg Castle is also situated.
Marselis Hotel was Anker Jakobsen´s dream and life project. Anker Jakobsen took pride in his profession, and would not accept factory-manufactured bricks, therefore insisting that every brick be hand-made. This can clearly be seen in the many hundreds of thousands of bricks, used both on the outside and inside of the hotel. Just as the pyramids in Egypt, no two bricks have the same size nor shape.
Marselis Hotel was owned by the Jakobsen family until it was taken over by the international hotel chain, Helnan International Hotels.
