Eat, drink, and sleep near the MCH Arena

The MCH Arena forms part of a complex including a conference centre and the Jyske Bank BOXEN concert arena. It lies on the edge of the town bordered by farmlands and an office and industry park, and there is therefore little around in terms of eating and drinking, which is better done in Herning’s town centre.
