Denmark’s Outdoor Capital Silkeborg is found in the most beautiful place of our charming little kingdom: The Lake District of Denmark. Surrounded by open waters, great forest areas and the most stunning views in all the land it is the perfect place for a holiday in nature.

Silkeborg is a Danish town with a population of 43,158 (1 January 2014). Silkeborg is the seat of the council of Silkeborg municipality and is also part of the East Jutland metropolitan area (ca. 1.2 million inhabitants).

Silkeborg is located in the middle of the Jutlandic peninsula, slightly west of the geographical centre of Denmark. The city is situated at the Gudenå River in the hilly and lush landscape of Søhøjlandet, surrounded by Denmark’s largest forest district and a great number of lakes. The lakes between Silkeborg and Ry that are linked by the Gudenå, are known collectively as Silkeborgsøerne (the Silkeborg lakes). The city is divided north and south by the lake of Silkeborg Langsø, which at the eastern side of the city, resolves into the Gudenå River.
