Hjørring | VisitNordjylland



Culture is ready to pounce – ready to provide you with new experiences. For it is impossible to visit Hjørring without being seriously engulfed in culture. The prominence of museums, theaters, art and sculptures in the town contributes to create a very special atmosphere. Here, you can enjoy an ice cream on the beautiful ‘fountain square’, Springvandsplads, and the sculpture Solringen, which constitutes the branching point of the major streets of Hjørring.

Olai and Sct Hans Kirke) are also interesting objects of exploration – and they are located within walking distance of each other. In January 2017 Vendsyssel Theater opened in the center of Hjørring. The house is 4200 sqm. and includes a theater room that seats 250-350 spectators.
