Welcome to one of the oldest villages in Scandinavia – and at the same time one that has the newest facilities.

Visitors are always welcome. Here you can find information to help you enjoy your stay and find out about the ‘real Vorbasse’

 

This year’s main events

Come and see the cows dance at ’Skovlyst’!
It is spring party time for them.
Bodil and Vagn Post run their ecological farm at 9, Rankenbjergvej  in Vorbasse. They converted from conventional farming in 1997, believing we should take greater care of our environment. This is the 11th time they open their stable doors so their cows can get grass under their hooves. You can really see their joy!
Come along on April 15th between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Activities for everyone:
Great play area in the hay
Go exploring the farm
Pet the sweet calves
Tractor rides for children
Have a chat with the farmer about ecology and farming

Free samples of products from Thise ecological dairy

Vorbasse Market, one of Denmark’s oldest traditions

No summer is complete without a visit to ‘Denmark’s greatest family tradition’. A quarter of a million guests visit the market every summer. Its history goes back almost 300 years. This year the market opens on Thursday 19th July at 12 o’clock and continues until the great firework display on Saturday 21st July at 11 p.m.
There are always 400 – 500 horses for sale, 200 dealers selling small animals (from white mice to red cockerels) and around 650 stalls of market goods – new, old, antique, odd. There are also six or seven travelling fairs with various attractions, as well as lots of free entertainment on the market stages. Vorbasse market is also the focus for many colorful ‘knights of the Danish roads’: tramps and travelling entertainers.
