Aros Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Aarhus

For a colorful view of the city, climb to the top of Aros Aarhus Kunstmuseum. 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.

  • Have visited multiple times, the Aros and it is increasingly just as interesting. New interesting exhibitions that impress and challenge. Architecturally the building is also an attraction in itself. This is a space that is interesting both for old and young.

  • AROS is definitely worth a visit. Both Olafur Eliasson's Your rainbow panorama and the permanent exhibitions, and særudstillingerne here in March was both beautiful and thought-provoking.

  • The rainbow ring is gorgeous....and the art exhibition is also interesting. What is even better is the ticket allows you to enter and leave the museum freely in the whole day. So if you go there on a Wednesday that they open until 10pm , you may enjoy the rainbow ring in the daytime and nighttime.
  • Beautiful place! Love "the 9 rooms" in the basement! They make me experience so many different feelings. From fear to relaxation.
  • Amazing place, always interesting expositions. Better visit 1 or 2 expositions per day. If you stay in Aarhus long, but a year pass, it is affordable
  • Very big place, many floors. The main halls are peacefull and quiet. After the roof top the we were about to leave but we noticed people downstairs and followed them to the basement, which was the most entertaining part
  • One of my favourite museums in the world! Go first to the top floor for the "Your rainbow panorama" experience and see the city through different kinds of lights and see how the colours affect you.
