Via Stryget to Søndre Plantage

Start on Enghaven and advance to Lille Østergade, Færch Torv (Færch Square) and Magic Cliff a sculpture you can climb. Cross Sønderbrogade to Danavej, and follow Sveavej past Ålund allotments.

Continue down Steen Blichers Vej past Storåen allotments. Next pass Stryget, built in 1989 to allow salmon and trout free passage past the dam. About 1,000 litres of water pass through Stryget every second so there is quite a current.

Cross Ringvejen, and turn into Tujavej in Mejdal. Then cross Prins Buris Vej and enter Søndre Plantage (Southern Plantation), one of Denmark’s oldest municipal plantations. Dalgas was the man who took the initiative to have the plantation laid out and he planted the first tree personally in 1866.

Next, follow Lyngstien, Skovstien and Skovbakken to Svinget behind Holstebro Museum and Holstebro Art Museum. The entrance to both museums is in tobacco-manufacturer Rasmus Færch’s villa, which was converted into a museum in 1967.

Holstebro Art Museum boasts world class modern art and Holstebro Museum houses premodern, medieval and modern collections.

Follow the path behind the museum and cross heading towards Åstien and returning to Færch Torv by Lille Østergade.
