Boulevard of Sculptures in Horsens (Skulpturalléen)

In the heart of Horsens, you can experience a range of art pieces in the streetscape created by some of the most renowned artists of our time. The sculpture boulevard spans over three kilometers from the train station through Denmark's widest pedestrian street to Horsens Marina.

Free art out in the open

In recent years, the center of Horsens has been enriched with a range of art pieces in the streetscape by renowned artists such as Christian Lemmerz, Maria Rubinke, and the locally born Michael Kvium. The sculptures are all publicly accessible in the city space. As many of the sculptures naturally followed a line from the train station and into the center, it was decided to work on expanding the number of sculptures precisely here. The sculpture boulevard is continuously developing, and more art pieces will be added to further beautify the cityscape and the new harbor promenade.
