The Riding Ground

Ridehuset and Officersbygningen (the Officers' Building) are the only remaining buildings of the Cavalry Barracks, which the Armed Forces left in 1969. Ridehuset has been carefully restored to retain its original character. Officersbygningen has been through major alterations for the purpose of serving as public administration. The entire area has been laid out as a culture park, and today Århus Musikhus (Århus Concert Hall) and the new art museum, Aros, are situated on the lot as well.

The architect V. Ravn was Captain of the engineers of the Fortification Corps in Fredericia.
