A Wealth of Culture and Leisure Activities

Furesø Municipality is home to a wide variety of art galleries and museums. With 3 libraries, several culture centres and plenty of opportunities to exercise indoors or outdoors, Furesø Municipality provides a huge range of cultural and physical activities to the citizens.

The two culture centres are venues for a wide range of cultural events, including concerts, theatre plays, dance shows and readings. Kulturhuset in Farum houses a Cinema, Grafen, run by volunteers. Værløse Bio & Café is located in the central part of Værløse. The culture centre in Værløse is called Galaksen and hosts many exciting artistic events, including circus shows, storytelling, musicals and concerts.

Local history has always been an important part of Furesø Municipality. Furesø Museer (Furesø Museums) consist of four historical buildings in the municipality that together cover ancient and modern history of Furesø. 

Furesø Municipality has three libraries, in Farum, Hareskov and Værløse respectively. So you are never far from a good read. Our libraries are great places to find community events and activities such as workshops, book release parties, author readings and story times. 

Exploring Art and Nature

Art and nature play an important role in Furesø and we have made an effort to combine the two. Farum Søsti is a 10 kilometer trail around Farum Lake which offers a unigue nature. For each kilometer, the route is marked with a stone that bears a relief of an animal or a plant that is common to the area. The art Work is carved by the local artist Olav Johannisson. If you follow the route in a clockwise direction, you will also pass stones with arrow markers showing the way in those locations where you might otherwise be unsure. Below, you will find a map showing the Farum Søsti trail.
