Favrskov Municipality includes the main cities Hadsten, Ulstrup, Hammel and Hinnerup as well as smaller cities and villages. The municipality is located in the middle of one of the most beautiful nature in Jutland, but is still only a half an hour drive from the larger cities, such as Aarhus, Silkeborg, Randers and Viborg. In the northern part Denmark’s longest river, Gudenåen, runs through.
In the beautiful nature, there are plenty of opportunities to stay active, as an example there is the Hammel Golf Club, mountain biking in the fantastic forest, sleeping in a shelter over a night, go on fishing tours, hunt, or play geocaching.
One of the well-known tourist attraction in the area is Modelbane Europa i Hadsten, one of the biggest model railway in Europe, with over 400 square meters of railway lines and 100 trains in service. The trains drive through a German-inspired landscape, with deep valleys and high mountains, rivers, dark tunnels and impressive bridges. The streets are full of life, with people, trams, buses and boats at the harbour. The railway lines meet at the main station where 11 platforms are setup. The trains demonstrate the 100-year history of trains, with steam locomotives and modern high-speed trains.
In the forest, there are also a number of beautiful castles and manor houses; including Clausholm Castle, Ulstrup Castle and Frijsenborg Castle.
Favrskov Municipality is part of European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017.
