Haslev

Haslev, a town in Faxe municipality, lies in the southern part of Zealand, Denmark. About 60km from Copenhagen, it has a population of 11,407 (1 January 2015).Haslev is popularly known as the school town with the green surroundings (skolebyen i det grønne). There are no less than six public schools, two boarding schools, a folk high school, and a technical school - as well as a college of education and a sixth-form college.The estates and castles of Gisselfeld and Bregentved are close to Haslev.HistoryHaslev started out being a small village named Hasle with a few houses and streets around the church. The name was changed to Haslev to avoid confusion with other similar town names in Denmark.In 1870, the railway line passing Haslev town was inaugurated. At that time, Haslev had only 653 inhabitants. A street named Jernbanegade (Railway Street) was paved, to connect the church with the newly built train station. In the years that followed, the street became the main street of the town with shops, banks and so forth. In 1911, the town had 3,668 inhabitants. In the 1980s, a square in the middle of the street was constructed.During the 20th century Haslev grew rapidly, becoming a center for the Church Association for the Inner Mission in Denmark. The latter built a folk high school, sixth-form college (with a boarding school) among others. In the 1970s and 1980s, the schools became independent of the founding association. Today, there are only few remains of the Inner Mission in Haslev.
