Holstebro is the main town in Holstebro Municipality, Denmark. The town, bisected by the Storåen ("The Large Creek"), has a population of 34,873 (1 January 2014).HistoryThe town arose at a ford by the creek, and later a bridge was erected. The name probably derives from holdested ved broen (lit, "a resting place by the bridge").Holstebro was first mentioned in a letter from Bishop Thyge of Ribe in 1274. A large fire in 1552 destroyed many of the town's old buildings.TodayThe town is a trading, industrial and cultural center in western Jutland. It has a large network of pedestrian walkways (gågader) in the inner town that support a varied shopping environment beautifully enhanced by outdoor sculptures and picturesque buildings. The first sculpture purchased by Holstebro Municipality, and the cornerstone in their efforts to further cultural development in the town, is Alberto Giacometti's sculpture "Woman on the Cart" purchased in 1966.Holstebro has a rich and varied cultural life; it hosted (1997–2009) the internationally recognized ballet company Peter Schaufuss Ballet; and still hosts the performance art theatre Odin Teatret. Several museums, including the Holstebro Art Museum with its collection of Danish and international contemporary art and the Holstebro Museum, can be found in the town.The Holstebro Hall, rebuilt in 1966, houses a music theatre, the Holstebro Convention and Culture Center (1991) and provides space for theatre presentations, concerts, exhibitions and conventions. More than 100 cultural events occur here every year, and the hall is visited by more than 100,000 people annually. Holstebro Hall was recently renovated.
