Holstebro has many beautiful areas of nature with both sea, fjord and forest

Sea, Fjord, Nature

Holstebro Municipality is an area where the contrasts are significant, and the opportunities are many. Bring your bathing suit in the summer and your warm clothes in the winter - then sea and fjord will be a memorable experience. Every season offers its own experiences. Experiment with kite flying, build sandcastles, play beach volley, try windsurfing - there is something for everybody here. The wood playground calls, and well-marked off hiking routes go through the area. There are marked off bicycle routes that will lead the whole family to new experiences by the next crossroads. Stop, take your time, be together, and experience the Holstebro area - also from the children's level. 

Outside Activities

Holstebro Municipality is made for being experienced from bicycle or on foot. There is an abundance of exciting villages, atmospheric manors, farms, splendid nature, the Limfjord countryside, and the beautiful west coast by Thorsminde. An active holiday feature for the whole family is orienteering. Holstebro Orienteering Club has set up regular o-posts in both Vestre and Østre plantation, as well as by Kjærgaards Mølle, so there is plenty of opportunity to practise your hobby or try it out for the first time. 



There is almost 100 kilometer's worth of sailing on a stretch starting in Herning, going via thicket and moors, through Holstebro town to Nissum Fjord
