Take a holiday in Holstebro – the charming market town nestling between the North Sea and Limfjord
Holstebro’s location makes it the perfect destination for nature and water lovers. Travel to Holstebro to enjoy the wild North Sea with its endless sandy beaches, or the Limfjord’s safe, sandy coasts. Paddle a canoe on Storåen, bike or walk through the green countryside of western Jutland. If you come to Holstebro, you can also look forward to strolling through the charming streets featuring great shops and places to eat.
Holstebro is a blooming market and culture town, graced by a collection of sculptures such as Alberto Giacometti’s Kvinde på Kærre. Expand your horizons in the town's exciting museums, including Holstebro Kunstmuseum in tobacco manufacturer Søren Færch’s old villa. The Kongelige Teater’s Ballet School and popular Holstebro Hallen are also here.
A family holiday in Holstebro is packed with things to do. Go beaver hunting on Klosterheden, go to the limit on the mountain bike track for kids at Sdr. Vosborg Hede, or drool over the toy collection at Holstebro Museum. Lighten up even the greyest rainy day in Ulfborg Svømmecenter or Holstebro Badeland, which features a 72-metre turbo slide.
For more details on the local area, visit Frilandsmuseet Hjerl Hede. This is a living reconstruction of a typical Danish village around 200 years ago, complete with workshops and a bakery. There is also a Stone Age settlement to explore. You can also visit the biggest activity centre on the west coast, Kystcentret, and Jyllandsakvariet in Thyborøn, with its massive coastal playground, petting zoo and a whole lot more.
Holstebro can’t offer visitors a big city holiday, but this town has won the award for Denmark’s best market town five times in a row. A good tip is to join one of the free town tours held once a week during the summer. You can also enjoy a free tour on the Naturbussen. Hjerl Hede runs special activities during high season in the summer and during weekends in Advent.
Come for a holiday or weekend break in Holstebro, and look forward to the perfect combination of shopping, culture and the countryside. A winning holiday concept in other words, which brings delighted holidaymakers back year after year.
