Trip Planner Europe  /  Denmark  /  Jutland  /  South Jutland  /  Vejle
Vejle is a town in Denmark, in the southeast of the Jutland Peninsula at the head of Vejle Fjord, where the Vejle and Grejs Rivers and their valleys converge. It is the site of the councils of Vejle Municipality and the Region of Southern Denmark. The city itself has a population of 53,975 (1 January 2015), making it the ninth largest city in Denmark, and the Municipality has a population of 110,471 (2015).Vejle Municipality is part of the East Jutland metropolitan area with some 1.2 million inhabitants. The city is also part of an informal region called the Trekantområde (Triangle Area), which consists of Vejle and the neighbouring cities of Kolding and Fredericia.Vejle is most known for its forested hills, fjord, harbour, shopping, pedestrian mall, and iconic windmill.HistoryThe word "Vejle" derives from the Old Danish word wæthel, meaning "ford" or "wading place" due to its location at a busy crossing over Vejle River. During Viking times, the wetlands around Vejle had to be crossed at the Ravning Bridge, a nearly half-mile wooden boardwalk. The first recorded mention of the town is from 1256, and the first known merchant town privileges were issued by King Valdemar III in 1327.
