Cultural centres

You are never far away from the nearest shot of culture. There are museums, libraries and activity centres throughout the municipality.

With six libraries, six museums, four activity centres, a cinema and various big and small music venues, you will always be able to have your daily cultural needs covered.

Books when it suits you

You can visit the library whenever it suits you. Aabenraa Libraries have five branches - in Aabenraa, Rødekro, Tinglev, Bov and Felsted. And they are open on all weekdays from 7 to 22. If you want to visit the libraries outside of the official opening hours, f.inst. in the evening or on a Sunday, just run your health insurance card through the card reader to get in.

At the Aabenraa Libraries you can also meet exciting authors and lecturers: Aabenraa Libraries host approximately 500 events per year.

Activities for you and your children

The four activity centres in the municipality each have their own profile. You can attend the many events, and you can also use the workshops and the exercise rooms.

Nygadehuset in Aabenraa has a number of special offers for families with children: Family brunch on the first Sunday of each month, communal eating for families with children on the last Thursday of each month and maternity cafes with exciting introductory speakers.

Nygadehuset is also an ambitious music venue seating 110 people. Here, you can experience popular, up and coming bands. Duné, Ulige Numre, Tina Dickow, Caroline Henderson and Nikolaj Nørlund are among those who have played at Nygadehuset.

The art and history of Southern Jutland

You can learn more about the history and culture of Southern Jutland at the many different museums in the municipality. At the charming art museum, Brundlund Castle, you can get acquainted with two of the great Danish masters within the art of painting: The Golden Age master, C.W. Eckersberg, and the avant-gardist Franciska Clausen - both fellow townsmen from Aabenraa.
