Horsens Municipality

– a Place of Great Culture and Growth

The Danish motorway network and public transportation system are modern, nationwide and optimised for growth. Horsens is located in the centre of this network. With our own commercial harbour and nearby international airport, Horsens is the perfect spot for distribution of goods as well as for attracting labour.

Why move to Horsens?

The perfect location

”It was crucial to find the perfect location for our future expansion into the Scandinavian market. Horsens fully met our requirements in terms of a modern infrastructure, geographical outreach and a well-educated, international workforce”. 

Kim Møller-Nielsen, CEO, ABUS-Gruppen Nordic A/S, on the globally leading lock and security group’s decision to establish its Scandinavian HQ in Horsens in order to better reach the Nordic countries.

Danish engine of growth

Horsens is among the top 3 growth regions in Denmark, attracting people, business, international students and investments. Along with the Copenhagen region, we are at the top of the list as far as population projections show – so far until 2040.

Well-educated workforce

More than one million people live within 45 minutes of Horsens. The workforce is well-educated, flexible and, naturally, English-speaking. 88,000 live in The Municipality of Horsens. An unemployment rate below the national average is a clear indication of our region’s positive growth.
