Venø is located in the western part of the Limfjord a bit north of the town Struer. The Island is 7,5 km in length and 1,5 km in width. As a result, the 6 km2 makes it one of the 27 Danish small islands. The population count 200 permanent residents and 80 boarding school students form the safe and dedicated local community.
Venø By (the town on the island) consists of vacation homes, old buildings and residential neighborhoods. The latter is quite uncommon for such a small island. However, given the excellent ferry connection, it is possible to live on the island while having a job elsewhere.
