Herning has been called “The Capital of the Heath” and with good reason. It was established at the beginning of the 19th century during the period of heath reclamation. During this period, the population grew resulting in an increasing demand for the products and services of the new farmers in the area. Herning became a centre of commerce for the area.
Today Herning provides a variety of shopping facilities in the city centre, where you can stroll along the pedestrian streets or enjoy the cafés, restaurants and pubs. Clothes at favourable prices are displayed both outside and inside the shops. The city offers a fantastic and varied selection of specialist shops that will fulfil any need.
The city is oozing with atmosphere and you can always find a place in the shade when you need to relax. Herning City has more than 2,000 free parking places in the area around the pedestrian streets making it easy to park near the centre.
