Observatory Art Museum
For a colorful view of the city, climb to the top of ARoS Aarhus Art Museum. This museum, one of the largest in this part of Europe, features a circular skywalk with windows painted in the colors of the rainbow. The skywalker's panorama changes colors depending on the angle of viewing and the weather conditions. Before you head to the top of the building, explore the museum's downstairs galleries of Danish art from the 1700s to the present day. The vast collection includes masterpieces by N.A. Abildgaard, C.W. Eckersberg, Christen Dalsgaard, and Edvard Petersen. To visit ARoS Aarhus Art Museum on your trip to Aarhus, use our Aarhus trip itinerary builder.

  • We never go in vain. This time big installation throughout the hall is beautiful and fun and 8 amazing imaginative large recycled installations on the floor used for contemporary art.
  • Some wonderful art pieces on display, showcasing numerous ways of expressing oneself or ones ideas. Definitely a place to visit if you ever find your self in Aarhus.
  • What a lovely quirky place. An amazing variety of spaces and exhibitions all topped off by the colour panorama. A must see and experience.
  • Interesting and definitely a must see in Århus. Shame it is so expensive and compared to other attractions world wide I decided to save the money. Afterall London offers free admission for loads attractions including art which would appeal more to me.
  • Lovely space with some fascinating exhibitions for young and old. Nice cafe downstairs and a great viewing platform at the top. Fun way to spend a few hours.
