Today Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary have visited Sønderborg in southern Denmark to inaugurate the Alsion concert and conference centre. The Queen arrived by helicopter and the Crown Prince Couple separately by small plane. The development on the Sønderborg harbour front is a joint project by the University of Southern Denmark, the Bitten and Mads Clausen Foundation (Danfoss) and the Sønderborg Municipality. The new complex includes a knowledge and cultural centre combining education and research together in an innovative architectural precinct. Queen Margrethe has unveiled a plaque marking the inauguration of the new centre and after being shown around the complex, the Queen, Frederik and Mary attended a concert with 800 other dignitaries, guests and students in the new concert hall with the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra performing in their new home.
