Hørning is a town in central Denmark with a population of 6,857 (1 January 2010)[1], located in Skanderborg municipality on the peninsula of Jutland just south of Aarhus and is a suburb today.

The sports arena Hørning Hallen provides the setting for the important social activities of the town: Snoutacus' extravagant barn parties, town celebrations, and semi-professional sport activities of the town inhabitants.

Socially, the town is divided between the people whose children go to Bakkeskolen, the conservative elementary school, and Højboskolen with a more progressive and alternative profile.

Nevertheless, the youth of Hørning cross social boundaries in order to meet at the local youth club.

Attractions

Hørning should not be mistaken for Herning which is the bigger, more metropolitan city in Jutland where the regional train passing through Hørning is also destined to.

Hørning got its name from a bend in the main road that runs through the town. In Danish a bend cand be lousely translated to "Hjørne" (Corner), and "ing" (People) is a typical ending for city names in Denmark, dating the name to the Middle Ages. Over the years the "j" disappeared, and thus the name became Hørning. The bend in the main road is close by "Hørning Kro", the town inn. On the other side of the bend, you'll find the Riders School, which was and old commoners school built by King Christian the fourth.
