In Herning and Ikast-Brande you will find beautiful nature, world-class angling for sea trout and salmon as well as hiking on the famous ancient road Hærvejen.
Hærvejen is an ancient road through Central Jutland that was once used to drive cattle from Jutland to the German region of Schleswig-Holstein. Today, large parts of Hærvejen are unpaved, but you can still find stretches of the old, historical tracks where you can sense the atmosphere of those days. The many grave mounds along the road testify to the fact that the Hærvej has been an important road in prehistoric times, most likely back in the early Stone Age.

The Herning area offers many good fishing experiences. Apart from Skjern Å, there are also Karup Å and Storåen which are excellent fishing waters. And there is a reason that the streams are so well-visited; Skjern Å is one of the few Danish streams where there are still stocks of original wild salmon.
