You are going to Denmark, maybe for the first time in your life, why not make a vacation of it? And why do you not bring your family as well?
In this page you will find some of the icons of Denmark, but as always there is a lot more to it than icons.
Herning, the capitol of the Heath
The town has evolved from a few houses around a single spinning mill in the 1870's to one of the most dynamic areas in Denmark today.
Herning is still known world wide for its textile industry, but also for one of Scandinavia's largest and most flexible experience centers facilitating large expos, sporting events, indoor and outdoor concerts and theaters.
