Experience Aros - the cultural heart of Aarhus


When you stay at one of our two hotels in Aarhus, you have the perfect base to experience ARoS Art Museum. Scandic Aarhus City is only a few minutes walk from ARoS. If you prefer to stay just a little outside of the city centre, we recommend Scandic Aarhus Vest. Read more about our two hotels:

International image and adventure house for children and adults

Nine floors and 17,700 sqm displaying Danish and international art in the heart of Aarhus. This makes the museum one of Northern Europe’s largest art museums where both children and adults can absorb a multitude of impressions. The architecture and the art is world class. Danish/Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has contributed a permanent work of art, Your Rainbow Panorama - a 150 metre long and 3  metre wide round multicolour sculpture that hovers above the ceiling of the museum. The museum has a special children’s section where the young ones can learn more about art in unconventional ways. In the workshop department, children can get creative themselves and express their artistic sides.
