Cultural attractions

The cultural life of north-western Jutland is both rich and multifarious and creativity is flourishing. You can visit our churches and museums of cultural history and learn more about the history. You can also stop by for a surprise at the art museums, the galleries and all the artisans – we have many of those.

It is clear that the light and nature is good to the art here, and the selection is vast. Like the painter Jens Søndergaard (1895-1957) said when his colleague Niels Bjerre asked him what he strived to achieve in his art: “I do not strive for anything but shedloads of powerful colours”. There is lots of colour and power here.
