Must see · Observatory · Art Museum
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.

  • It's so refreshing to find an art museum that is constantly trying to build on its collection. I haven't been to a place like this. The sheer spectrum of art from all over the world, different time...  more »
  • Loved the architectural design. Good customer reception and service. Basement has a display but also some recreational sports facility. Particularly loved the kids laying down below the huge mirror type sphere there. Very interesting variety of displays, with some interactive ones too. Great panoramic view of Aarhus from top rainbow tinted glazed rooftop corridor. !
  • Located in the heart of Aarhus, this is a must visit for all. The experience it offers is unique and beautiful. It is best to start from the lowest level of the building and work your way up the floors. This would mean you start with the installation arts and move up to the rainbow walk atop the museum from where you can see all of Aarhus. There is a cafeteria as well on the top floor, in case you want to indulge your appetite. A special mention must be made of the infinity room where you see endless reflections of yourself and is, frankly, a good way to see things from different perspectives, literally.
  • My favourite place to relax and chill out. I never miss a new art exhibition. At the 3rd floor there is a nice area to sit and read. The food of the cafeteria is also ok. Tasty salads for a fair price, nice evening menus and you get a 10% discount with the Aros membership card. I love it!
  • Always interesting to get inspired. art is the way that we can grow as a community and move boundaries. let's not ban the different- but move us away from intolerance. here ARoS has a role of enlightenment. thanks
  • I thoroughly enjoyed this museum... could easily spend the afternoon here. The exhibitions are well organised and thought out. They’ve a restaurant here if you get hungry. On the top floor you get to enjoy the rainbow panorama view of Aarhus - so beautiful!
