Introducing Silkeborg

In a country of supreme flatness, the modern town of Silkeborg is something of a black sheep, surrounded as it is by hills, sitting on an expansive lake and spaciously laid out. Modern-art lovers and history boffins will find cause to stop here a while, but nature-lovers who have the most to celebrate. It’s Silkeborg’s surrounding landscapes that draw plenty of tourists – not adventure-seekers after an adrenaline rush but rather families and other outdoorsy folk drawn to the lush forests and waterways that are perfect for gentle cycling, walking and, especially, canoeing.
