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.

  • Great museum. Even if you're not that into ordinary museums! Beautiful and innovative. We spend several hours even though we are all teenagers and the mythology exhibition is great!  more »
  • Great art exhibit! Plenty to see. The rainbow-walk on the top was the highlight for me, but there was plenty of great works. Note Norwegian Marianne Heske!  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.
