      Dear B&O fans,

      I’m in Denmark now and convinced my family that daddy MUST visit the holy halls of Bang & Olufsen in Struer ๐Ÿ™‚

      Maybe there are some other Beoworld members that would like to visit Bang & Olufen headquarters, too?

      Does anybody know if this is possible if I’m just stopping by there with my family or does it have to be a bigger group?

              Hi TWG,

              The B&O factory tour and museum are an essential pilgrimage for any true Beofan, I hope you are able to get to see the museum in Struer, even if you canโ€™t get to B&O.

              As well as the usual B&O sights, I recommend taking a short drive across to Bremdal (the next village to Struer) to visit the excellent store that Morten and Viggo run there.ย  They also have a vintage B&O store on the same street, which is an amazing place.ย  They have run the B&O store for 3 generations and their family B&O collection is one of the best private B&O collections in the world (they have over 1,000 items, including 500 Beolit radios!)

              Den Glade Pingvin (The Happy Penguin) is the best bar is Struer and recently has new owners.ย  The food is superb!ย  If you get the chance to see the sunset over Struer harbour, that can be a lovely sight.

              Enjoy your visit!

              Kind regards, Steve.

                Before you visit the store, be warned. Unless you get there by bicycle your purse will be lighter and your car heavier. ๐Ÿ˜‡

                  Haha ๐Ÿ™‚

                  I remember the ancient thread in the old forum where I wished to have the opportunity to be sometimes part of such a delegation of Beoworld forum members. I was also impressed by your travel by bike ๐Ÿ™‚

                    PS @T.W.G.: unfortunately, being located in Bavaria it will be difficult to join. I wish you good luck, maybe you can convince anybody to stay in the cafe or you might get free spots on a Wartelist. Otherwise we have to go on collecting things and setting up proper museums at home and share them in the Flash-your-B&O thread!

                      I guess you all know that there is relatively little production going on in โ€˜the holy hallsโ€™ in Struer nowadays.

                      Surely it is interesting to see how they work with aluminium (and colours) in the Fab5/Fabrik 5.
                      However – if you are interested in the history of Bang & Olufsen – the Struer Museum should be the right place to go to (open on weekdays except for monday from 11-17).
                      That should be interesting enough for the whole family.

                      If you want an insight in the current B&O, this video – that Steve made last summer – could be interesting.
