The welcome reception, hosted by the City of Aarhus and Aarhus University, takes place on Thursday, 15 September between 18.30 - 20.00, and all participants are welcome. Enjoy a special evening at the Aula of Aarhus University and the Museum of Ancient Art located in the middle of the beautiful University Park. The museum takes visitors on a cultural journey through ancient Mediterranean history and houses a great collection of Greek, Roman, and Egyptian treasures. Admire presents offered to the Greek gods, ancient drinking bowls, an Egyptian mummy, and several plaster cast reproductions of some of the most famous sculptures from the ancient world.
