Herningsholm was built in 1579 by the nobleman Josva Von Qualen, and came to play a central role in the development of agricultural production in the area. But Herningsholm has also been part of the textile industry in central Jutland, as a farm of 3000 acres of land was established in 1638 to raise sheep. This provided an abundance of wool, which was even exported to Germany. In 1754 Herningsholm was rebuilt in a more classical style and today the manor houses Herningsholm Museum, which among other things tells about the life and writing of the author Steen Steensen Blicher and exhibits several of his original manuscripts. Herningsholm also houses an 18th century knights' hall and the manor is surrounded by a lovely park with paths open to the public. A wonderful place to spend a relaxing weekend break or a mini break.
