Aarhus and Art

We must be getting better at this riding and navigating thing because we ride 50 km in just under 4 hours and are in Aarhus in time for lunch.

The beginning and middle of the ride is pleasant, through a nature reserve on a bike path and down non busy side roads. We have to ride beside the main highway on a bike path coming into Aarhus, so it is noisy with the vehicles rushing by. We find the hotel with only one wrong turn. Pretty good!

Our purpose for coming to Aarhus is the ARoS Museum, an art gallery.  It is a tallish building with a rainbow walkway on top. We can see it blocks away. Our first stop in the gallery is, of course, the Rainbow Panorama.

Inside looking out

There are six floors of art, ranging from expressionism to modern to just plain weird. We cruise through the galleries expanding our minds and looking for that one piece that grabs us and makes us stop and stand still in awe.

Being Sunday in Aarhus, there is a lot going on outside. There is a festival happening just outside the ARoS so we go sit for abit to rest my feet. Families and friends are all out enjoying the warm weather, food, beer and company.

We explore the streets and get slightly lost but a few turns heads us back to the large church that is near our hotel. We have another day in Aarhus to explore the city, so we return to our hotel for a break before supper. I wonder what we will find tomorrow.
