Street in the old part of Horsens

Horsens is a city in western Jutland with a population of around 55.000. Already during the Viking age it was a settlement called Horsnes. The name probably referred to the breeding of large numbers of horses in the area.

Horsens is located at the end of a beautiful fjord which can be viewed from the harbor. The fjord is the typical Danish kind with rolling hills and forests that stretches all the way down to the water.

Get in

It takes 28 mins to reach Horsens from Aarhus by DSB Intercity trains, the main train service operating in Denmark. Horsens is two stops from Aarhus towards Copenhagen on the main line running from Frederikshavn in north to Copenhagen.

The nearest airport is Billund Airport, the country's second largest airport.

There is also a smaller airport in Tirstrup, north of Aarhus. Passengers arriving at that airport and are depending on public transportation will have to catch the airport coach into Aarhus station and then a train from Aarhus to Horsens.

From Copenhagen, Horsens can be reached with trains running from Copenhagen Airport Kastrup. The journey time is approx. 2 ½ to 3 hours (most often passangers will have to change trains at the main station in Copenhagen).

Get around

A ticket purchased on a local bus is valid for one hour and costs DKK 14. A ten-trips card costs DKK 105, each trip is valid for an hour as well. A great way to discover Horsens is by bike. You can rent bikes at different locations, ask at the tourist office located in the Søndergade.
