Get to know Horsens (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel.

The city of Horsens is located at the end of the beautiful Horsens Fjord, about two hundred kilometres from the Denmark's capital Copenhagen. The name of the town is believed to be connected with the breeding of a large number of horses in its early history, as "hors" is a Danish word for horse.

Horsens is a lively and fascinating place to visit, with lots of things to see. If you are traveling in summer, you can attend the European Middle Ages Festival, which is held on the last Friday and Saturday in August and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. It can be very interesting, seeing the centre transformed into a medieval market, especially for children, because there are lots of different activities in the festival. Another popular festival in August is the annual art and music Stoneass Festival. It is held in a former prison Fængslet, which also serves as a museum today. If you a literature fan, especially of crime and thrillers, there is an event called The Crime Festival (Krimimessen) in March.

Despite being relatively small, Horsens is a popular destination for music fans. Plenty of famous musicians have performed there, like Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, and Madonna. Two other interesting buildings well worth visiting are the industrial museum Horsens Industrimuseum and art museum Horsens Kunstmuseum.

You will not find a lot of hostels in Horsens, but what it has to offer is pleasant to stay and easy to reach. Horsens offers fast bus connections and a couple of rent-a-bike places, if you prefer to be a little more active.
