A quick one for the weekend whilst I prepare a new batch of pictures.
I went for a nice trip to the beach in Aarhus where I had a longish walk. The Baltic Sea was freezing cold in January, but – you won’t believe it – I saw several people jumping directly from the piers into the waves. Ouch! Although they just had a quick swim of about 10 mins or so, it must have been brutal. I told a Danish friend and he laughed it must be the Viking blood or something!

Today I am sharing some pictures of the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum (please see my previous post for an introduction).
Let’s start at the rooftop with its “rainbow panorama”, a circular skywalk designed by Ólafur Elíasson. I don’t know how much time I spent there, must have been an hour. It’s just beautiful: the colors, the view, the sound, the whole atmosphere.

In the background at the right you can see the harbor with its many cranes.
View from across the skywalk:

The front entrance of the ARoS (it is higher at the backside, since it was built on the side of a hill):

At the right you can see part of the academy of music.
The staircase in the entrance area:

Inside the museum you can find all types of art.
I loved that one here:

This sculpture is called “Boy”. It was created by the Australian artist Ron Mueck.
They installed mirrors around this guy. Look at those details!

Having a vegetarian meal at a cozy place nearby (the Danish would call this Hygge). Delicious beyond description.

Hope this was worth the wait and you enjoyed my excursion to the ARoS.
There are so many great things to see there, it’s just impossible to show everything.

Have a nice week!
