Welcome to Herning

In Herning every opportunity is open – whether you are here for a short stay or planning to settle down.

Herning is a great place to stay and to live – a city and an area with a lot to offer. Hospitality and service is in focus here,  as we welcome many visitors for fairs, conferences and international events all year round. But we are also known for many other things, like a rich cultural life and active sports life, a dynamic business climate and good jobs, many study opportunities and great things to do for families. You can live in the city or in the country – and we have great nature all around.
