Welcome to Horsens!

Holidays in the Horsens area offers cosy city life by the fjord, and a wide range of exciting events, concerts and musicals. There are numerous cultural experiences to enjoy and annual events include; the European Medieval Festival, the Crime Fair at the old Horsens Prison and Horsens Children’s Theatre Festival, to name a few. In short, if you’d like your holidays to be a memorable experience, Horsens is the place to go!

More about Horsens? Please look here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horsens

We live in a nice, old house from 1908, with wooden floors, high ceilings and stucco.
The house is 160 m2 living area (plus 100m2 basement, which we only use as a washing room and storage, the basement is not renovated).
The house is situated about 1000 meter from the heart of Horsens.
There are two bathrooms (one with a tube and a shower, the other one only with a shower), masterbedroom and a huge bedroom for Lucas, double livingroom and a nice kitchen with all aquipment.
In Lucas bedroom there is a single bed and a double couch. It is possible to have an extra mattress if needed.
The washing machine and a toumble dryer are in the basment.
We did a lot of renovation in our house but still there are a lot of things that need to be done.
We have a nice (400 m2) garden as well with a some things for children and a good place to enjoy your meals when the weather allows that.
Within 5 minutes walk from our house there is a nice park (Lunden) with a special place for children to play. And there is another huge park on the other site of the centrum where you can find a huge playground. There are always a lot of children there. You can take your food and enjoy it there as well.
Lucas has wii and a lot of lego and other stuff in his room.

It is not always that we travel with our son Lucas. He loves to spend his summerholidays at his grandma in Poland, so as long as he wants that, he spends his summertime there, and we are travelling alone.

We prefer to make exchanges with people who are living in a house, preferably close to the city center so we do not need to drive a lot. We love to explore the town on a bike and we hope that you have some bikes we can use :-)

Please notice: We live in the city and you can expect some noise in the garden as there is a road just outside our garden.

We have three cats at home but they will be at the cat-hotel when you come here.
