Refugee cemetery in Grove
At Grove Church west of Karup airfield lies the refugee cemetery, which was established during and after World War II. The cemetery is the final resting place of 1,119 German refugees and 175 German soldiers. They rest quietly under rows of uniform grey granite crosses.
The art in Uhre Church
On the outside, Uhre Church looks like any traditional village church with classic red bricks and a distinctive steeple. However, the inside offers something very unique. Built in 1920 by architects Monrad and Plesner, the church underwent an extensive renovation in 1993 in collaboration with Helle Scharling-Todd. This brought in colours, stained glass, and wooden pews, which were painted in bright and festive shades.
Birk - The White City near Herning
Birk city began as a collection of farms, but has evolved into a unique, internationally recognised area where art, architecture, landscape, education, and business all merge. The buildings are all white. Take a stroll through the multitude of sculptures, immerse yourself in architectural masterpieces, visit Elia and finish off your experience in the Geometric Gardens.
Red Anna in Birkelund
In Brande, a gable is adorned with a painting from 2013 depicting Finn Birkelund's mother, better known as Red Anna because of her fiery red hair. The painting captures Red Anna surrounded by proud and decorative birch trees in a beautiful playful use of colour. On a walk in Brande town, you can see many other gable murals painted since the 1960s.
West of Vildbjerg, a unique place reveals itself. At a height of 102 metres, it rises majestically above the otherwise flat moorland and offers a breathtaking view of one of the few large moorland areas that still exist in Denmark. The area offers charming hiking trails that invite you to experience the unspoilt peace and quiet of the heathland.
