Each year 12 faculties of Aarhus University compete in the battle of “Det gyldne bækken” in front of up to 25,000 enthusiastic spectators. Each team consists of 5 members where both genders have to be represented. The competition is basically about crossing the lake fastest in an inflatable construction which the team brings. Then drink a beer, spin 10 times around it and sail back across the lake for the next team member to repeat the procedure.
This year it will as always take place in universitetsparken on April 28th but you will have to be there early to secure a good spot as the park will be packed (see picture). The event lasts from the early morning (some people show up already at at 5:00 am to get a good spot) until late night.
