Aarhus’ Museum of Modern Art has a notable collection of Danish art with a wide range of constantly updated international exhibitions. A five-metre-tall sculpture named "Boy" has quickly become the museum's landmark, and so has the recently inaugurated "Your Rainbow Panorama" walkway (50 meters above street level), offering breathtaking views over the city through multi-coloured glass.

Do & See

The relatively large influx of young people and students from across the Nordic countries creates a natural base for cultural activities, and there are countless cafes as well as clubs, cinemas, museums, parks and various other venues of entertainment. Each year, the town hosts several festivals and concerts including Aarhus International Jazz Festival in July and Aarhus Festuge in September—the biggest themed festival in Scandinavia.
