Vestergade is an iconic street in the heart of Aarhus and definitely worth a visit while you’re in Aarhus during SPOT. With its close proximity to the music venues VoxHall and Atlas, it’s a perfect place to escape to if you feel like basking in the sun while enjoying a cup of coffee from one of Vestergades numerous cafés or a ‘pilsner’ and authentic Danish ‘smørrebrød’ from Vesterlauget.

 

Åboulevarden

Some of the city’s best restaurants, cafés and cocktail bars are located at Åboulevarden – and during SPOT it also plays host to the infamous SPOT Royal stage. A quick brunch or lunch in various price ranges is easy to find here. When darkness descends on Aarhus, Åboulevarden plays host to night clubs and cocktail bars such as Herr Bartels where they serve a mean cocktail.

 

Graven

ARoS

ARoS – the art museum – is almost a piece of art in and of itself due to Olafur Eliasson’s massive art installation, Your Rainbow Panorama, located on the top of the building. A walk around the colorful walkway is worth a trip to the museum alone, but enjoying one of their many special exhibitions and impressive collection of both Danish and international contemporary art also serves as a nice break in between the many concerts at SPOT.
