Nine Things to Do in Aarhus, Denmark, Aarhus, Denmark (B)

A couple of weeks ago, I took a trip up north to visit a friend in Aarhus. Located on the east coast of Jutland, Aarhus is the second biggest city in Denmark and is full to the brim with attractions – beaches, deer parks, bike trails, museums and art galleries, just to name a few. Since my last visit, the place has grown, with new cafes opening up, updated museums and a brand new library. In fact, next year it will be named the Cultural Capital of Europe! Fill up your purse with Danish Kroner, pack your scarf, beanie and mittens and be prepared for a cold, but invigorating, Scandinavian holiday.

The AroS Aarhus Art Museum houses new and interesting exhibitions all the time. But, by far my, favourite thing about this creative space is the Rainbow Panorama, designed by Danish/Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, which has been enjoyed by tourists since 2011. Climb to the rooftop to experience the colourful 360 degree views of Aarhus in whichever hue you choose!

This brand new museum is built into the hill and houses an extensive exhibitions, ranging from the Stone Age and Iron Age through to Viking times and beyond. With interactive displays, high-quality technology and fascinating artefacts, such as the remains of the Grauballe Man (a bog body that has been dated back to 3rd century BC), this is a must-see attraction. At the very top, you can enjoy beautiful views over the ocean and surrounding countryside. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
