Holte Town Hall
Søllerød Council is situated approximately 20 kilometers north of Copenhagen, where the town of Holte is home to one of a number of Arne Jacobsen (1902-71) designed town halls (1938-42).
Holte Town Hall was designed primarily by Arne Jacobsen in collaboration with Erik Møller (1898-88) and Flemming Lassen (1902-84).
This building now seems a little neglected and it’s age is beginning to show. However it still bares strong resemblances with the more famous Århus City Hall.

The town centre also contains the Holte Midtpunkt shopping centre. Holte Church was completed on the top of Geel’s Hill (Geels Bakke) in 1945.
Holte is a suburban district in Rudersdal Municipality on the northern outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark. The local town centre is centred on Holte station and is surrounded by extensive areas of single-family, detached homes as well as several lakes and forests.
