If you have time to spare between the world class handball-games in Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning, there are plenty of opportunities to experience after hour events.
Maybe you fancy a concert at the venue Fermaten, or the slightly smaller scenes Kontrast or Scene7.
Additionally, MCH each year offers a series of concerts, shows, theater, sporting events and exhibi-tions both in the national and international league.
Birk, a suburb just east of downtown Herning, is an outstanding area. It is comprised of some of the region's higher education institutions, as well as innovative companies and two art museums:
HEART - Herning Museum of Contemporary Art, is worth a visit to experience both the interior and the exterior. The museum contains an internationally recognized collection of Piero Manzoni's works.
Until January you can see the exhibition “DANSK” with designs by Jens Quistgaard, the successful and pioneering chief designer of the American brand Dansk Designs with sculptural and aesthetic designs, which has since acquired the status of classics of Danish and international design history.
On the opposite side of the street is the Carl -Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum with its collection of Cobra art, whose colorful universe already begins on the museum's exterior, which Carl -Henning Pedersen created with his imaginative stroke. They are currently showing a large ex-hibition of the works of the bohemian artist Henry Heerup.
Shop and eat
But, you do not need to go to a museum for an art experience in Birk. The whole area is character-ized by art, among others, the Sculpture Park, the geometric gardens and Hernings unofficial land-mark, the 22 meter high sculpture Elia, created by artist Ingvar Cronhammar .
There are also good opportunities in Herning if you prefer shopping, partly in Herning Shopping Centre, with its 75 specialty shops, which is rated as one of the best shopping centers in Denmark and partly in Herning City, with a combination of shops, cafes and restaurants, all of them dressed up for Christmas, which makes the city a cozy shopping experience.
Here you can also visit the award-winning library Herning Bibliotek, which opened in 2014 and has quickly become a cultural hub in downtown Herning.
If you feel like an evening stroll, it may be good idea to head over to Østergade in the city center, where a number of pubs, bars and restaurants are concentrated and where - especially on weekends – you will find live music and dance.
