Vemb is a little town in west Jutland, Denmark with a population of 1,313 (1 January 2014). The town is close to Nissum Fjord and Storå. Vemb also has a station on the railway line between Ringkøbing and Holstebro. Two kilometers south of the town is Nørre Vosborg, a manor house surrounded by ramparts. It is one of Denmark's oldest and was mentioned as early as 1299. Vemb lies in Vemb Parish, which belongs to Holstebro Municipality in Region Midtjylland.HistoryThe town's name has been known from 1325 and throughout the years up until 1844 has been spelled in 8-9 different ways: 1325 Weæm1347 Weom1350 Wæm1360 Wææm1500 Wern1553 Weem1561 Vem1599 Wimb1612 Vem Kirke > Vemb Kirke1844 Vemb The first time the town was named, it was called Weæm. The ending letter b emerged around the year 1600, disappeared, then finally appeared again in 1844 in the present spelling form Vemb. The meaning of Vemb is not known, but could possibly mean "vi" (Danish for "we").The oldest building in the current city boundary is Vemb kirke (Vemb church), which has undergone few changes since it was built around 1200.Just east of the church lies Den Gamle Skole ("The Old School"), now privately owned, that was the town and area's first school. It is said that in the late 1800s three women met on 1 April in the little school with one classroom. These three women would all reach the age of 100. In 1908 the current school was inaugurated near Burvej, called Vemb Skole (Vemb School): an entirely different school with central heating, a gymnasium (which later became a library) and a workshop. Vemb School has just had its 100-year anniversary jubilee, with 1000 former students in attendance.
