It's been a really long time since I last posted (received) something from Denmark, so this card is a great refreshment :D Horsens is city in east Jutland, Denmark, with a population of about 55,000It is believed the name Horsens derives from the old Danish words hors (horse) and næs (headland). From the 12th century the name Horsenes is known.
The earliest traces of a city are remains of a pagan burial site and houses dating back to the 10th century. In the 12th century the kings Sweyn III and Valdemar I issued coins in the city. In the 13th century the city got its own legal code.

Thanks to Hans for the card and using various stamps :)
