Provincial Charm: Viborg, a historical nest in central Denmark.

borgvold-so

If you’re looking for a great way to understand and learn  about the Danish phenomena of “hygge”, why not explore the essence with a spirit of provincial character? Charming Viborg with its lakes and forests, old cobbled street and splendid architecture from the beginning of last century is sure to whirl you into the nest of history. From vikings to royalty, over merchants, marches and pheasant life on the moor. Take a city stroll through the old, narrow streets with crooked houses, old market signs and churches, the old coronation site and home to many national writers and historical prominence from Denmark’s darker colonial past on the West Indian Islands.

End your days around the pedestrian areas for shopping, art, or visit one of the many cafes for some chilling atmosphere and local recipes of pastry. In the evening, Viborg’s many restaurants offer a variety of possibilities at the Scandinavian kitchen.
