Travel back in time for just a little while. The charming medieval streets and scenic surroundings in Viborg will give you a true sense of being close to history. Not to mention how close you will be to great food, cultural, and art experiences. And, of course – to each other.

Art, history and shopping

A weekend getaway in a historical town is a very special experience. You feel the unique and relaxed atmosphere when you stroll down the cobbled streets past beautiful, old houses. When you are in Viborg, you simply must see Viborg cathedral, which is one of the world’s largest granite churches. If you would like to have a guide show you around the church and the town, Viborg Museum is happy to help.

Art lovers will enjoy not only Viborg Kunsthal, but Skovgaard Museet, as well – here, you are sure to be wow’ed by the world-class art. When you are in town, go shopping in the old quarter, the Latin Quarter, or find some great products at the indoor shopping-centre, the Sct. Mathias Centret, while you count down to an amazing concert that you have prebooked tickets for at Tinghallen.

Into the countryside and history

Spend your Sunday in Viborg’s green surroundings; the possibilities there are endless. Go hiking down Hærvejen - the Ancient Road and make a pit stop at De fem Hald’er, that perfectly intertwines the countryside and history.
