The Old Town of Arnborg

Visit Arnborg – a town surrounded by watercourses teeming with fish, large heath plantations and a plethora of historical sites. Skjern River and Rind River are both dammed here. The dams mark the start of the Dalgas Canal, which was built to irrigate the meadow lands along its length. The canal is 21 kilometres long and was opened in 1872.

The town boasts Hjemstavnshus Arnborg, which houses a museum of local history and a small nature centre.

To the south, in the area locally known as Skjern River Confusion, there are shelters with toilets, picnic tables, a fire ring and canoe moorings. (GPS 55.995668, 8.963065).
