Horsens is located at the end of Horsens fjord. Horsens tourism is attractive to the tourists for its typical landscape with low hills and valleys. These hills and valleys were created by glaciers at the time of the last ice ages. The surroundings of the city ensure that the Horsens weather is no hindrance to the growth prospects of Horsens tourism. The city is home to the country’s only Industrial Museum and the Vitus Bering University College. The city has made special effort to expand and improve upon the cultural events by having internationally known artists perform.
