Borgvold with its old rampart is the oldest and probably most beautiful park in Viborg.
Borgvold (approx. 4.5 hectares) was laid out in 1864 near the lake of "Nørresø" (Northern lake). The rampart is most likely the remains of the King's castle, which Erik Menved built in 1313.
In the summer the kiosk is open. It is possible to rent boats, canoes and pedel boats. You can also find a fine playground with covered tables and benches.
At Borvold you find many different trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, annual plants etc. Furthermore there is placed a monumnent of Erik Ejegod (Danish king from 1095 to 1103) and a sculpture called "The Water Girl". "Bibelhaven" (Bible Garden) is a part of park "Borgvold".
