Stays and sleepovers atHerning City Hotel

New and big rooms

A hotel has stood on the corner of Bredgade and Skolegade in Herning since 1896. Back then it was called the Herning Missionshotel – or Herning Temperance Hotel – and it was on two storeys with an adjoining stable for travellers. Subsequently, the hotel grew considerably, with two additional storeys being added, while the stable building became redundant and was demolished. By the 1990s, the temperance hotels had had their day, and the hotel was therefore transformed into a ‘garni’ hotel, i.e. a hotel that only serves breakfast, with rooms and a breakfast room, where the focus is on providing a very high standard of personal service.

In 2016, all the hotel’s 52 rooms were fully renovated, so that they are now bright, spacious and very comfortable, with new furniture and, of course, with an en-suite bathroom, telephone, radio, flat screen TV and wireless internet access.  There is a lift to all the floors, and the hotel’s elegant reception area has three specially designed niches, where guests can use the phone and computer with internet access. The hotel also has a charming bar, where you can enjoy a nightcap before retiring to your comfortable bed.

The hotel has its own car park, where guests can park free of charge, while Herning railway station is only a few hundred metres away. If you are flying in or out, the airport taxi drives directly from the hotel to Midtjyllands Airport 65 minutes before each flight departure.

The hotel’s location on the corner of the main pedestrian street is also ideal for visitors wanting to explore Herning’s many shops. There are several restaurants, cafés and pubs in the immediate vicinity, and only 400 metres to Herning Congress Centre. MCH Messecenter Herning and Jyske Bank BOXEN are about three kilometres from the hotel. Both Herning Congress Centre and Jyske Bank BOXEN organise big events with concerts, ballet, theatre performances and shows which attract large numbers from right across Jutland.

Herning is also well known for its fine art museums. The Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum, whose buildings are an attraction in themselves, and the art museum HEART (Herning Museum of Contemporary Art), where you can experience world-class contemporary art in a unique and brand new building, both lie in the ‘white town’ of Birk, just to the east of Herning. This is where you also find the Sculpture Park, and the labyrinthine landscape in the Geometric Gardens, where up to eight-metre tall hedges form nine different geometric shapes.

    Life on the heaths of Central and West Jutland

    Frilandsmuseet Herning provides a unique opportunity to experience life in the countryside on the heaths of West and Central Jutland, as it was lived in the 1800s. Between the old fruit trees, you can move in and out between the old farming environment, where volunteers every Thursday forges iron, tends to the garden, farms honey and maintain the old buildings, using old techniques.

    Indoors, you will find our “Occupation Apartment”, portraying life in an apartment during the German occupation of Denmark between 1940-1945, as well as the exhibition of the folklorist Evald Tang Kristensen. You can also go on an adventure in Jens Nielsen’s Farm, which is one of the museum's most popular attractions – especially for children. Here, more than 100 different zograscopes show the daily life all year round on a farm in the early 1900s.

    At Frilandsmuseet, you can experience a comprehensive sound installation - a so-called soundscape. The soundscape is installed in the old farmhouse. Here, the museum's guests can experience a complete and authentic sound experience of a heath peasant family's everyday life in the latter half of the 19th century.

    Museum Midtjylland

    Frilandsmuseet is part of Museum Midtjylland, which consists of four cultural history museums that each tell a part of the history of Central Jutland. Both the history that dates back thousands of years and the history that is still alive in memories, people, and craftsmanship. Stop by to discover the history and stories, and experience Central Jutland, as it was before, now, and tomorrow.

    Tvis Monastery

    29.72 km

    On 24th March 1163, Buris Henriksen was seated in his farmstead in the company of distinguished guests. In addition to King Valdemar I of Denmark the company included two bishops, three Cistercian abbots, and several magnates. They were gathered in order to testify to and seal Buris Henriksen founding of a Cistercian monastery in Tvis.
    The Cistercian monasteries formed a large and solid network of monasteries throughout Europe, and Tvis became part of this community. The name of the monastery was Tuta Vallis, Latin for ‘the safe valley’. The Tvis Monastery was situated near the place where the Tvis River flows into the Storå river.

    In 1693 the monastery was demolished, and a wing erected against the monastery's west wing was made parish church. Not until 1887 was this wing demolished, when Tvis' present church was finished. Today nothing remains of the monastery. You can see more of the monastery's history in the old water mill on the site.

    At present, shelters have been built in the area. If you want to stay in the shelters on the square you can book them before. The shelters is for free use but booking the shelters gives certain visitors first priority.
