Vejle in few lines
Vejle – in IPA: /ˈvai le/
– town in Denmark and site of the council of both Vejle
municipality (kommune) and Vejle County (amt), located in
southeast of Jutland peninsula.
Vejle is a picturesque town
located at the head of Vejle Fjord, and for a country where the
highest natural elevation is only about 170 m above sea level,
Vejle is well known for the forested hills that rise up to the
north and south of the town and fjord. The older, central part
of town features a sizeable cobblestone pedestrian mall leading
past the former Town Hall, built in 1878-79. Other prominent
landmarks are St. Nikolai's Church, from the mid 13th century,
and a windmill built on the slopes of the hills to the south,
which, visible from almost everywhere in town, is a symbol of
the town. The town is also an industrial center and features a
large harbor for shipping.
The oldest form of the name Vejle
was Wæthelæ, meaning ford, due to its location at an important
crossroads at a ford over Vejle River. And throughout its
history, it has played a significant role as a merchant town at
a busy crossroads – today it is still an important junction for
road and rail transport.
Vejle was first established on an
islet where the small Vejle and Grejs Rivers converged before
emptying into Vejle Fjord. The first recorded mention of the
town is from 1256, and the first known municipal charter was
granted in 1327, although the town itself is probably older.
Contemporary Vejle's oldest building, St. Nikolai's Church, was
built during the mid 13th century. During the Middle Ages it was
important as a market town for traders and artisans, and it
developed along those lines up to the mid 17th century.
Throughout these years, the town developed its trade in
agriculture and livestock, and traded with cities such as Lübeck
and Flensburg, in what is now Germany.
During the late 17th and early
18th centuries, Vejle's population suffered considerably from
bouts of the plague and war. However, in 1796, Vejle was made
the seat of the newly founded Vejle County, and the town
expanded throughout the 19th century, benefiting from
technological advances such as a new harbor on the fjord, a
railroad station, and modern utilities.
From the mid 19th century into the
20th century, Vejle successfully converted from a provincial
market town into a busy industrial center. Because of the many
wool mills, the town was at one point known as the "Manchester
of Denmark", although the town's metal works also formed an
important sector. More recently, however, Vejle's industry has
moved into food production – it boasts of the worlds largest
chewing gum factory, which produces Stimorol* brand gum. Even
so, industry has become less important in recent years, and as
this has happened, other sectors such as data technology and
communications have gained in strength.
With the industrial expansion,
Vejle's residential areas also increased in size, and the town
expanded into the hills surrounding it. Traffic congestion has
also increased with the population, and in 1975, the Vejle Fjord
Bridge was constructed over the fjord as part of a highway along
Jutland's east coast so that through traffic would no longer
have to be routed through Vejle's center.
* Stimorol is a Danish company,
founded in 1915 by Holger Sørensen, that produces chewing gum.
