    Alderslyst Kirke

    0.2 km

    Under the project management of the expert Copenhagen church architect, V. Hardie-Fischer, and with local architect E. Hermansen on site, extensive restoration work was carried out on Alderslyst church from 1975–77. All of the windows in the church were fitted with stained glass made ​​by the artist Sven Havsteen-Mikkelsen. The churchyard contains four stone sculptures by Erik Heide. The pathway between the churchyard and the parish hall is marked by 12 steles, also by Erik Heide.

    The Castle islet of Silkeborg Castle

    1.07 km

    Once upon a time, there was a castle

    Silkeborg Castle, the first of its kind, was constructed in 1385 as a simple wooden structure with palisades. Later, it was replaced by a stone house, and in the early 1500s, a main building in stone, a courtyard, and a stable yard were added.

    Silkeborg Castle received visits from several royal guests, including Frederick 2 and Christian 4, who frequently stayed in the main building known as "The Great Stone House," especially during hunting trips in Mid Jutland.

    During the 17th century, the castle was heavily damaged during the Swedish wars when Silkeborg was occupied three times by Swedish troops who ravaged the castle buildings.

    The last remnants of the castle were demolished in 1726 after having fallen into disrepair for several years.

    Today, the layout of both the main building and the castle courtyard is marked with earthworks.

    You can access the area via a bridge over the Gudenå River at Silkeborg Langsø or from the Papirfabrikken area.

    The Fountain in Silkeborg Langsø

    1.26 km

    Silkeborg Langsø's fountain is one of the largest in Northern Europe, with the capacity to shoot up to 355,000 liters of water up to 30 meters into the air. The fountain consists of a total of five fountains that project water into the air with varying strengths. The tallest, central jet reaches a height of 30-33 meters, while the others reach 20 and 3 meters, respectively.

    Projectors within the fountains ensure a spectacular light show, with colors changing according to a pre-programmed sequence lasting approximately 35-40 minutes.

    Therefore, the fountain was moved

    Today, the fountain is located in front of Silkeborg City Hall on Søvej. Previously, it was situated further out in the lake, but it was moved closer to the shore because it was disturbing the local birdlife.

    However, this new location posed new challenges, as strong gusts of wind could send water directly towards cyclists and car windshields on the road alongside the lake. Therefore, the fountain is now connected to a weather station, automatically turning it off when the wind comes from a specific direction and reaches a certain speed.

    Normally, you can see the fountain in action from May 1st to September 20th between 12:00 PM and 12:00 AM, and on weekends from 9:00 AM to 12:00 AM. During major events such as Regattaen and the Riverboat Jazz Festival, the fountain often continues until 3:00 AM.

    Silkeborg Paper Mill Papirfabrikken

    1.34 km

    Before the mill was built, development in the area consisted of Silkeborg Manor (today Silkeborg Museum), a watermill, an inn, a small brickworks and a few houses. Only around 30 people lived there in total. But the construction of the paper mill generated urban growth.

    The mill burned down in 1864, but was rebuilt and production continued. The mill was expanded several times. In 1910, the characteristic banknote factory (which today houses the Henton Group) was built. This occurred when the paper mill was given the honourable job by the Danish National Bank of producing paper for the country’s banknotes, a production which continued until 1963.

    The factory was further expanded with two parallel buildings for paper machines. These buildings now house the Radisson BLU hotel and Midtjyllands Avis newspaper. Silkeborg Papirfabrik closed in 2000. The factory buildings then underwent extensive renovation and were converted into commercial and residential buildings. New homes and a new music and theatre venue were built.

    Silkeborg Rådhus

    1.35 km

    The first stage of the town hall was occupied in 1973 by the social services department. Over the following years, the municipal administration, which had been spread throughout the town, was gradually assembled at Søvej, as each stage of construction was completed.

    The town hall was officially inaugurated on 19 August 1977. In 1980, the town hall had to be extended due to a shortage of space, so a floor was built above the social services department. The neighbouring building at Søvej 3 has since been integrated, and part of the administration is located there today.

    Faunapassagen

    1.43 km

    The River Gudenå has been dammed up by the current Langebro bridge in Silkeborg since some time in the Middle Ages. A water mill was established at the spot, where the water power was used for grinding corn. When Silkeborg Papirfabrik opened in 1844, the mill was shut down and water power was instead used to operate the machines in the factory.

    When the paper mill closed in 2000, the new owners of the factory area voluntarily relinquished the right to exploit the water power. The dam was removed, as was a turbine house that stood there. This opened up the opportunity to establish the long-awaited passage for fish and other small animals, known as a fauna passage. The passage – the longest of its kind in Denmark at 90 metres – was opened in June 2004.

    10,000 tonnes of boulders, 200 tonnes of iron, 300 tonnes of concrete and 20 tonnes of wood were used for the ladder which leads the water flow in a zigzag through a drop of approximately two metres from the harbour and down to the end of the ladder. The water flow is automatically controlled by three large dam gates, which ensure that the water level only fluctuates within a pre-defined limit. Next to the passage is a canal that leads canoes and boats from the lock at the harbour out into the river course.

    Silkeborg Church

    1.49 km

    The beautiful altarpiece is carved in gold-plated wood. The motif depicts Christ on the cross flanked by the Virgin Mary and the apostle John. At the bottom, a frieze runs with the 12 apostles surrounding Jesus as the savior and judge in the center.

    The beautiful stained glass mosaics in the apse depict "The Good Shepherd" and "The Sower." Also, take note of the splendid organ facade from 1943, on which the former king's coat of arms can be seen.

    The church's carillon consists of 49 bells and plays every day at 8:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 2:00 PM, 4:00 PM, and 6:00 PM.
