Herning is a Danish city in the central region on the Jutland peninsula. Herning has a population of approx. 50.000 and was established in the beginning of the 1790’s as a commercial centre, providing goods and services to the farmers in the area. A textile industry later developed in and around the town, and this industry was once Herning’s principal economic activity. In the 50’s and 60’s there was also a strong focus on art in the city. Among other places, this is especially seen in the environment around campus.
ART AROUND CAMPUS
HEART – Herning Museum of Contemporary Art is just across the street from our campus.
Carl Henning Pedersen & Else Ahlfelt’s Museum is right next to our main building.
Elia – a colossal sculpture 32 m high – only a 5 minute walk down the street.
The Geometric Gardens is also right next to our campus and worth a walk in between meetings.
Herning offers many different cafés and restaurants – enough to suit everyone’s tastes – Italian, Chinese, Indian, Turkish, American etc. as well as several pubs. We recommend taking a walk down the main street in Herning where you will find most of them.
Everything is basically within walking distance in the centre of town.
We recommend taking the bus, train or car/taxi when travelling outside the city centre.
The train stops at Birk Centerpark Station, which is only a 10 min walk from our campus. See Arriva’s schedule here (blue route on map).
If you wish to take the bus from Herning Station to the venue, find bus no 5, which departs approx. once every hour and takes 8 minutes to get to the venue at Birk Centerpark. See timetables here.
