Danish writer who achieved great popularity and fame in Denmark, but also abroad, especially in Germany and England. He worked as a railway clerk and came to Struer in 1902.

He founded Struer Museum and was very interested in nature and conservation. He became a cultural beacon of his time, but the status faded after his death in 1940 and he is now almost forgotten.

Johannes Bucholtz visiting The Jenle Festival 1929 - to the left on the stairs  his friend author Jeppe Aakjær, the organizer of "The Jenle Festival" and owner of Jenle House. Just one year later on the 22nd April 1930 Aakjær died from a heart attack, just like Bucholtz did another decade later the 5th August 1940.
