Visit the quaint village of Bryrup, situated between the cities of Silkeborg and Nørre Snede in a valley gorge, surrounded by lakes and moorland. Bryrup has 1570 inhabitants and was originally one of the old station towns on the former Horsens-Bryrup-Silkeborg railway, which was named The Most Beautiful Railway in Denmark because of the stunning scenery it ran through. A small section of the railway still exists today and runs as a vintage railway between Bryrup and Vrads - a distance of 5 kilometers.
The area lies at on a scenic ridge and therefore, contains a combination of the vigorous countryside and moor. The nature path between Horsens and Silkeborg which runs through the village of Bryrup has characteristically formed landscape, created during the Ice Age, when the melt water created big valleys. The lakes Karlsø, Langsø, Kvindsø and Kulsø, which are connected by the river through Bryrup, are also relics from that time and offer great fishing opportunities.
At the foot of the hill, leading to Bryrup, there was, in ancient times, a spring with a shrine. With the introduction of Christianity, this was replaced by a church. The present Bryrup church was built in the 12th century.
Bryrup is centrally located for day trips, excursions and other attractions in the area.
