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.

  • While it’s not cheap it’s definitely worth a visit. There’s always different exhibitions going on and just the rainbow panorama is already worth it. Can’t beat the view of the city from there.  more »
  • AroS is really its very own museum experience. I went through with two teens and they were both very excited-and most for the rainbow at the top. The building itself is really exciting, different (a bit of touch of the Guggenheim) and really nice & super inviting. Can really be recommended to visit and next time I would really like to have the boyfriend with ❤️

  • 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.
