Welcome to Viborg - The Heart of Jutland
Viborg is the 2. oldest city in Denmark. The formal formation of Viborg started around the year 1000, but the area had been a sacred rallying ground since ancient times. In the centuries through 1600 Viborg was a religous and political centre of power both in Jutland and Denmark. It was a stronghold for the Catholic church. Viborg was Jutlands trade center and the place where all Danish kings received their tribute.
Today traces of the historical past can be seen everywhere in Viborg and the most famous sight in town is the Viborg Cathedral. The Cathedral dominates the skyline together with the large hospital which is the only high-rise building here.
