Taking a trip around Birk reveals a fantastic world of beautiful buildings, works of art and landscapes.
Back in the day, Birk was simply a handful of farms, but today it is a unique, internationally known area, where art, architecture, landscape, education and business is connected in exciting collaborations.
Birk is green
Between all the interesting buildings, you will find green areas and parks with beautiful plants and flowers, paths and water fountains.
The sculpture park is one large circular museum, where the art can make its mark on you, in the fresh air.
The park is located right next to the Geometrical Gardens, where a labyrinth with new rooms and shapes lies waiting behind every hedge.
From central points you can enjoy the view of the open landscape north and south of Birk.
These 3 attractions are a must-see when you visit Herning and The White City.
If you have got the time to dig deep, then you have to see all these attractions as well. You will meet them on your tour around Birk.
At first, a folk high school was build in Birk, followed by design and business schools, as well as a part of Aarhus University. By having education and business side by side, the students are in touch with the real world. The different educations attract many Danish and international students to the inspirational, international study environment in Birk. Many visitors and students use Birk Centerpark as a starting point, that quickly and easily connects the area with Herning and the rest of the world.
Textile companies, design companies, a private hospital, agricultural council and IT- and revision companies are examples of some of the different businesses and trades you can find in Birk. The big office building Innovatorium can be seen as an expression for the support and understanding of the local entrepreneur spirit. Here all companies, big or small, can get advice and counseling for starting and running a company.
