Welcome to Herning – a municipality both known for homegrown culture and for massive events and concerts in Jyske Bank Boxen and MCH Messecenter Herning.
Culture experiences in large quantities are also available in the regional music venue Fermaten, the upcoming scenes Scene7 and Kontrast, the local theatre Team Teatret featuring its own ensemble, Museum Midtjylland that brings the past to life with Tekstilmuseet, Frilandsmuseet, and Herningsholm, and with the musicians in Ensemble MidtVest.
A tour around Herning Municipality also offers lots of opportunities to experience the extraordinarily beautiful nature. The sights at Præstbjerg Naturcenter are particularly magnificent. Here you will find hilly areas, oaky brushwood, gorgeous lookouts, and little forests and lakes. At Søby Brunkluslejer you can study the dramatic and stunning effect that mining has had on the surrounding landscape. In Skovsnogen Artspace you can combine nature and art by a walk in the forest which is home to more than 80 unique works by renowned artists.
Another must-see in the municipality is Birk where art, culture, education, and business really come together. You can experience world class art in museums such as HEART – Herning Museum of Contemporary Art and Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum or climb Ingvar Cronhammar’s giant sculpture Elia that has become a trademark for Herning.
