Welcome to the Municipality of Hedensted

The Municipality of Hedensted, as we know it today, was created in January 2007, when the municipalities of Hedensted, Juelsminde and Tørring-Uldum as part of a nationwide local government reform were united to form one large municipality called the Municipality of Hedensted.

Situated at the A45-highway between the larger cities of Horsens and Vejle and only a 40-minute drive from the Billund Airport, the Municipality of Hedensted is an attractive location for as well citizens as companies. The Municipality of Hedensted is build on values such as diversity, community, responsibility, openness and development, and it is our goal to help all newcomers – Danish as well as foreign – to a smooth start in our municipality.

To help us achieve this we have created a welcome guide, which gives you as foreign newcomer information about coming to and living in Denmark in general and in the Municipality of Hedensted in particular. How can we help you and what do you have to do when moving to Denmark?
