Situated by the beautiful River Omme, Sønder Omme is the northernmost town in the Billund municipality.
The jewel in it’s crown in the local inn, which received a royal charter in 1780, and today is a perfect setting for a great meal, a golfing break or a spot of relaxing with lovely views of the river.
The Omme is the focal point for many of the activities to do in town, with fishing and walking along a path following the old 19th century drainage canal proving most popular.
As with many of the towns and villages in the region, the community spirit is strong, with a huge summer fete the centrepiece. Since 1974, thousands of people visit from all over the country to sample the music, entertainment and hospitality of the region.
However, music and cultural activities are not just confined to the festival period. Sønder Omme has a flourishing musical and artistic community, as well as welcoming locals who are happy to show-off their home town to visitors.
In contrast to other towns in the area, Sønder Omme’s past is there for all to see. It’s church – thought to be built in the Middle Ages and known as ‘Long Maren’ – is one of the oldest and largest in the area and is a source of great pride to residents.
Thanks to its superb location and facilities, Sønder Omme is a great place to make a base or visit during your Danish holiday.
