    The Tobacconist´s Dream

    0.01 km

    The project The Tobacconist´s Dream consists of some 36 sculptures sited over three different venues in Holstebro: Den Røde Plads, Færch Torvet and Hotel Royal/The Music Theater.
    The initiative for the project was taken by the hotelkeeper Jens Richard Pedersen in 1993 after a journey to St. Petersburg in Russia, where the impression of the sculptures at the Winter Palace gave inspiration to placing the sculptures on and around the hotel and the Music Theater in Holstebro.

    The artistic management of the project is in the hands of the artistic group Krukako consisting of Hans Krull (Denmark), Dimitri Kaminker (Russia) and Leonid Kaminker (Ukraine). The group thematically took inspiration from The Odin Theatre in Holstebro and their working methods occured, a method, which is normally only seen within theatre and music. The experiment has therefore forced the artists out in a democratic working process with the mythology, and the world of the archetypes.

    The name "The Tobacconist´s Dream" is meant as a tribute to the cigar makers at the tobacco factory that Rasmus Færch established in Holstebro in 1869. The former cultural director of Holstebro Municipality, Hans Kr. Didriksen, tells in his preface "The Tobacconist´s Dream - a story about the individual, Holstebro and the whole world":

    "Ebbe Kløvedal Reich's narrative justifies the project's title. In other words, the tobacco worker is a cosmopolitan figure, he is the symbol of the free experience and a dreamer who helped to make a mark on Holstebro's cultural, social and political life".

    According to an old legend, a mean worm - the Basilisk - lived under the the bridge. The worm was so mean and evil that he ate everybody who tried to cross the brigde. One day a knight came to town. His name was Holst. Holst fought the worm which at the end became so scared that he turned into a rock under the bridge, and here you find him today.

    As a tribute to Holst, the town was named after him - Holstebro.

    The Building

    There was a wish that the music theater was presentable and interesting to look at, but it should also work optimally as a theater building. 

    Several different architects were involved before reaching the final result. In 1989, the firm 3 x Nielsen conceived an extensive facade renovation, and in 2006 Kjær and Richter delivered the drawings, which radically changed the hall and incorporated Storå in the appearance of the house, where the foyer is set to become a link between the northern and southern part of the city.

    The new building still contains parts from the Holstebro Hall from 1966, and unlike many other cultural buildings, the music theater was realized within the budget that was set.

    The Florentine Boar

    0.14 km

    The Florentine Boar on the Brotorvet in central Holstebro is a replica of the famous bronze boar in Florence, which Pietro Tacca cast in 1639 to Marcato Nuovo. The original boar was created from a marble sculpture found in the earth in Rome in 1550. In Florence, the boar is a mascot, and it was supposed to bring happiness by rubbing the boar's snout and throwing a coin into the basin. From the mouth of the boar, water runs down into the water basin with frogs, grass snakes, bees and a turtle. You also find copies of the bronze boar in the Netherlands, Sydney in Australia and on Vancouver Island in Canada.

    After visiting Florence and seeing the original, Hans Christian Andersen wrote the adventure "The Boar in Florence".

    In Holstebro, Hardernes Y's Men’s Club has found inspiration in the above and made a wish well at the Metal Boar on Brotorvet. By throwing a coin in the well, you support a good purpose. Unlike most other wells, there is a guarantee that wishes will be met! If one does not get his / her own wish fulfilled, one contributes to the fact that children with cancer will have a wish fulfilled.

    You can get the story of the artwork on the free city walks with a guide to the art in Holstebro, which takes place on Wednesdays in July and August. The tours start at 13:00 at "Woman on Cart" at The Old Town Hall in Nørregade and lasts approx. hour and a half. Participation is free and does not require registration.

    The cultural-historical museum in Holstebro tells Denmark's history in Western Jutland.

The museum offers sensual experiences, and you can interact both analogously and digitally.

An entire room is dedicated to the iron foundry's factory history dating back to 1862 in Holstebro. Here, 11 people tell the story, and you can hear sounds from the factory, which were you in the middle of everyday life at the factory. In this way, the industry's past and present are communicated to the museum.

    The exhibition "An everyday life in spite" tells about the occupation during World War II, the resistance struggle and daily life.

    The Old Town Hall

    0.39 km

    The Old Town Hall was built in 1846 after drawing of architect Nebelong. The stones from Nørre Vosborg Brickwork were sailed on horse-drawn barges up Storå. At the festive opening of the town hall a cannon was fired, but the unfortunate cannon exploded and the person responsible for the firing was killed.

    The building served as a property and a detention house. The building was consecrated in 1960 and is together with the Toll House - Bomhuset - and Nyboes Gaard the only protected buildings in Holstebro town.

    The decoration in the staircase was performed in 1957 by artist Albert Emiel - locally known as Albert Emil Christensen. The  Fresco paintings "Market Days in Holstebro" show scenes from life in Holstebro, where industry replaced agriculture as the main business.

    On each side of the entrance door you will see the two memorial plates received by Holstebro in 1966 and 1980 when the city was designated City of the Year. In addition, a memorial plate from 2006, when Holstebro was voted Denmark's Best Trade City, and a memorial plate from the Danish Cultural Heritage Agency.

    At the municipal assembly in 1970, the city council expanded from 15 to 21 members, and the number of seats in the City Hall was expanded. The city hall stands as when it was used until 1986, when the new town hall was taken into use.

    During summer in week 27 - 32 there are tourist information at the Old City Hall. It is also from here that the free guided tours on Wednesday at 1 pm in July and August start.
