    The Vejle Bridge

    11.94 km

    Towering above Vejle Inlet, the impressive Vejle Bridge connects Mølholm in the south with Nøremarken in the north. The Vejle Bridge can be experienced close-up from Dyrehaven (the deer park) in Nørreskoven or from Vejle Marina.

    Construction of the Vejle Bridge began in 1975, following fierce lobbying from local politicians and citizens in Vejle. In the past, traffic was routed through Vejle town itself along the old dual carriageway No. 10. Up through the 1960s and early 1970s, traffic became increasingly congested in the town centre. In 1974, the Danish parliament decided to construct a new motorway from Kolding to Vejle, which included the bridge over Vejle Inlet, and on 1 July 1980, the much-needed motorway bridge could be inaugurated. Price: DKK 350 million.

    There was some initial resistance to the project. It was feared that the bridge would become an eyesore in the beautiful natural landscape surrounding Vejle Inlet. The architects therefore chose to design the bridge in a very neutral style, so that the bridge was naturally suited to the wooded surroundings around Vejle Inlet.

    The bridge over Vejle Inlet is a classic example of a beam bridge, where the bridge deck rests on a number of pillars. In this case, the bridge deck rests on 15 pillars and each of the intermediate bridge sections has a length of 110 metres. The crossing height is 40 meters. The Vejle Bridge is 27.6 metres wide and has a total length of 1,712 metres, making it Denmark's sixth-longest bridge.

    Since the bridge opened, the traffic on the Vejle Bridge has increased so much that today the bridge is Denmark’s busiest motorway bridge. Figures from the Danish Road Directorate show that, on an average day, about 50,000 cars cross the bridge.

    Nørreskoven Forest and Dyrehaven deer park, Vejle

    12.5 km

    Nørreskoven Forest on the north side of Vejle Inlet is one of the most frequented forest in the area – one that invites you to enjoy many outdoor experiences. The very versatile piece of nature offers grave mounds, dried out springs and monuments. Nørreskoven is particularly well-known for the large beech trees from the early sixteenth century. Also enjoy a stroll in Dyrehaven (deer park). See the forest from above in the treetop climbing park, Gorilla Park Vejle, or challenge yourself to the forest trails by the sports college, Vejle Idrætshøjskole.

    The forest has an extensive hiking trail system.

    The Dyrehaven area
    Dyrehaven (deer park) stretches over a 30-hectare area in the south-eastern part of Nørreskoven. The motorway cuts through the heart of the woodland, but there is a passage between the two sections under the arches of the Vejle Bridge, where you can also admire this huge construction. It is possible to get very close to the 2 deer species fallow deer and bead. Please note: it is not allowed to feed the deer.

    Obstacle course, mountain bike trails and disc golf
    By Vejle Idrætshøjskole (sports college) in the north-eastern part of Nørreskoven there are mountain bike trails, obstacle courses (Skovbanen) and a disc golf course. There is access to the area from Nørremarksvej via Ørnebjergvej east of the college.

    The hilly woods of Nørreskov are ideal for mountain biking. The five-kilometre mountain bike trail is easy to use for all. The track is shaped like a figure eight and offers two difficulty levels. The hard track surface means that the trail can be used year-round regardless of weather conditions. The 600-meter obstacle course, built using forest materials, is somewhat more demanding. The area also has a disc golf course that can be booked through the college’s training centre.

    Tales from Nørreskoven
    Nørreskoven comprises the areas known as Forkobbel, Bagkobbel and Polakkerskoven.
     
    The former ski jumping hill is one of the curiosities of the Bagkobbel area. It was built during World War 2 in connection with the very cold winters. 

    Polakkerskoven got its name from some Polish mercenaries, who roamed the forest during the Swedish War in the years 1658-60. The citizens of the city captured the Polaks and built their skulls into the north gable of Saint Nicolai’s Church, where they are still seen.   

    Far into the seventeenth century, the holy spring of Helligkilden was visited by sick people on May 1 and on Midsummer Day.  In 1905, the spring was restored, but has since dried out.

    Glud Museum is an open-air museum where you can experience 350 years of village history. Here, among other things, there is a timbered house built around a square, a small fisherman’s house and smallholdings to explore. The museum tells of life in the small rural communities from the 17th century up to the 1950s.

     

    The old farm

    The many historic buildings each tell their story. Come into Rasmus Thomesøn’s farmhouse from 1662, where you can have a look in the dark living rooms where alcoves, fireplaces and long tables stood close. In the small fisherman’s house, fishing nets hang in the living rooms and the mattresses are stuffed with seaweed. In the tall transformer tower, you can experience what a revolution electricity was.

    The history of forgotten things

    In the big exhibition hall there hides stories of children’s births, the fire service and everyday many pursuits. Here you can see mail carriages, butcher’s blocks, alderman batons and maternity pots, objects that were once an important part of society but are now almost forgotten.

     

    Life in the village

    There are many exciting events throughout the year.

    The Prison Museum

    21.68 km

    Experience the dramatic award-winning museum

    The walls of the old Horsens State Penitentiary could tell many violent, fantastic and fascinating stories. As a guest at the museum, you are guaranteed to have a unique, thoughtful and memorable experience you will never forget.

    As soon as you enter Europe's largest prison museum, all your senses are brought into play. The exhibitions offer experiences that can be seen, heard and smelt. Precisely for this reason, a tour of the fantastic building is a great experience for both children and adults. And this is why the museum has repeatedly won awards for its exciting exhibitions. You are given the exceptional opportunity to get behind bars and meet former inmates as shadows on the walls. Life in the PRISON and the story of the Danish prison system are also told through the use of screens, telephones and intercoms.

    On the walls, doors and closets, you can read the sometimes vehement, sometimes humorous messages from the inmates painted or drawn as an eternal reminder of their time in the state penitentiary. Together with the digital tools, they help to tell the authentic story of life behind bars.

     

    Lorentzen’s incredible escape tunnel

    Experience the impressive, 18-metre-long tunnel by escapee Carl August Lorentzen that led from his cell to freedom. Digging such a tunnel required an enormous amount of hard work, dedication and perseverance. The inspiring story of Lorentzen was then on everyone's lips and it taught the Danish people that "Where there is a will, there is also a way".

     

    The dark dungeons

    The underworld - this is what the prison museum calls its most recent exhibition which can be viewed in the old dungeons. The dark cellar was once used for punishing, executing and disciplining the inmates and this is your chance to see the gloomier side of the prison with its painful tools for punishment.

     

    The many exciting stories

    Learn about Horsens State Penitentiary's role during World War II. And get to know Werner Best - the leader of the German Armed Forces who was sentenced to death after the war and served time in Horsens.

    See where and how inmates sentenced to death were executed in the early days of the prison in the 19th century. And how did you go about things when inmates got married and wanted romance?

    The Prison Museum is filled with captivating tales. But do not worry, the prison no longer holds inmates. So, unlike the great escapee Carl Lorentzen who always dreamt of freedom and thus dug his way out of the Horsens State Penitentiary, you are free to leave again.

     

    Do also visit the city’s other exciting museums

    Experience four museums in Horsens with just one ticket: The museum card gives you seven days’ access to the Prison, The Industrial Museum, Horsens Art Museum and Horsens Museum. Learn more here.
