In the centre of Central Jutland, Herning shines with an incredible range of everything from art to entertainment. Herning Museum of Contemporary Art is clearly one of the city's prides, showcasing experimental art from the 1930s up to the present day. Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum houses 4,000 works by the artist couple, who were also associated with the Cobra group. The outside of the museum is adorned by a 90-metre-long stoneware frieze by Carl-Henning Pedersen. The large Elia sculpture, with a total height of 32 metres and a diameter of 60 metres, may seem quite impressive.
Discover the history and development of photography and the camera from 1839 to the present day in the company of the various photo exhibitions that adorn the walls of the Photo Museum. But otherwise there is also the Herning Open-Air Museum, located in the Museum Park, or how about an exciting tour of the Textile Museum. If you've got petrol in your blood, the AutoGalleriet might tempt you with its collection of more than 100 classic cars and vintage motorcycles and much more. Or take a swing at the top of the tree canopy at Wow Park and don't forget to go wild at Baboon City, which boasts more than 200 interactive rides in a huge area loaded with fun and entertaining moments.
Herning is known for its nightlife, which mostly takes place on Østergade and Bredgade, where there are a number of pubs, restaurants and discos and therefore often a lively atmosphere in the streets. If you're looking for something to do with the whole family, Herning is the perfect destination for a cheap mini break or weekend break.
