Brønderslev is a modern town and perfect when you need a break from the great outdoors.
You can shop here amongst the wide range of retail on offer, enjoy a taste of Vendsyssel at one of the many places to eat, or explore the town’s exciting galleries and specialist shops. If you’re interested in church culture, then Brønderslev new and old churches are worth a visit. The latter was built in 1150 of granite blocks, and has an altarpiece and pulpit in the Renaissance style from around 1600. North of the church is a unique woodland cemetery, the only one of its kind in Denmark.
Flowers for everyone
The town’s icon and trade mark is the Hedelund Rhododendron Park, with over 10,000 plants, making it one of the biggest in northern Europe. Between May and June, it puts on an orgy of colour and fragrances, when over 130 varieties are in bloom.
The park was created in 1994 on an existing park dating from 1890, retaining the imposing beech trees which are over 100 years old. Enjoy a picnic overlooking the expansive lake, with its white bridges, ducks and swans.
