Get to know Horsens: This is where you find local galleries and beautiful architecture
There are also free experiences waiting for you in the city.
If you are interested in art, you can visit one of the many local galleries. For example, pay a visit to Galleri Gasværk which is located at Denmark’s Industrial Museum. Gallery Gasværk is an artistic community and it is possible to study the artists while they are working, or view finished works such as paintings, collages, glass craft and jewellery.
Also, visit the 1,800 square-metre-large Galleri Brænderigården which exhibits a wide range of sculptures and paintings. Or visit Kvist Galleri & Interiør which – besides the sale of handicrafts – also exhibits paintings and lithographs.
Art may also be experience outdoors in Horsens. Horsens focuses on making art available through street art which can be enjoyed on gables and house ends as well as street art at several locations throughout the city. There are also a fair number of sculptures made by renowned artists in the streets, adding life and play to the cosy city centre.
In Søndergade, you do not need to spend money to feel entertained. When walking along Denmark’s widest pedestrianised street, we recommend that you keep your head up. Note the architectural details that characterise the old buildings. While you look up above normal eye level, you can leave your children to jump on the street trampolines or play on the musical swings at the Town Square.
Do you feel the need to immerse yourself? At the Libraries of Horsens Municipality, you find magazines, reading material, music, games and movies. This is a place where you can also sit and relax with the newspaper or participate in free talks and events.
