It’s the oldest church in Holstebro. The first church was built in 1440, but that church burned down. They rebuild the church and reinforced it. In 1907, they realized the church was too small, so they decided to build a new one. Unfortunately, the old church was built too strong, so they struggled demolishing it. They then decided to use dynamite for the demolition, and succeeded. The church they built in 1907 was too big to be placed in right direction. So, in order to build the new church, so they had to change that also.
The Odin Theater was founded in Oslo in 1964 by Eugenio Barba. He gathered a group of actor aspirants, who had not entered the State Theater School, and developed a training for actors. At this time, no other similar groups existed in Europe. Being self-taught and independent of the mainstream theater world was unheard of and has characterized the history of the Odin Theater up to now.
The Music Theatre Holstebro was built in 1966. It was one of the incentives for placing focus on cultural in Holstebro in the 1960’s. The theatre has been renovated several times, most recently in 2006. In 2009, Boxen opened, which houses the Black Box Dance Company. On the southern side of the box, you find Denmark’s largest outdoor digital screen of 90 square meters.
The main square is in the center of Holstebro. It is surrounded by stores and cafeterias. The commune has decided to decorate the fountain, in the middle of the square, after the different seasons of the year. The fountain itself, is decorated with St. George and the dragon (St. Jørgen and the Dragon). The decoration of St. Jørgen and the dragon, is the same that is on Holstebro’s coat of arms.
Holstebro has a main park that is a short distance from Holstebro´s town center. The park has a big lake in the middle. There is a lot of natural life, like ducks and fish in the lake and birds in the trees. You can walk on small paths around the lake, which are easily accessable. There is also a playground in the park that is beautifully surrounded by trees. There is also an outdoor stage where theater plays or concerts are shown in the summertime. The space in nature makes an atmosphere of peace and composure.
