Hjørring (Danish pronunciation: [ˈjɶɐ̯e̝ŋ]) is the main town and the administrative seat of Hjørring Municipality, Region Nordjylland, Denmark. The population is 25,780 (1 January 2020).[1] It is one of Denmark's oldest towns, and it celebrated its 750th anniversary as a market town in 1993.

Overview

Archaeological discoveries show that the area was already populated 10,000 years ago.

A major fire burned down much of the town in 1819.

There are good educational opportunities in the town including a gymnasium (the Danish equivalent of a high school or pre-college), a business and technical college and a nursing school.

Hjørring also has a large hospital.

Museums and attractions

Dana Cup, one of the world's largest football tournaments, takes place in Hjørring at the end of July, with 17,000 footballers from all around the world. The tournament celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2006.

The town is also the home for the Hjørring Revue (Hjørring revyen), a summer revue that has been a part of Hjørring's entertainment life since the 1920s and one more revue, the Lundergaard Revue (Lundergaard Revyen). The latter revue celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2008. The revue has about 5000 guests a summer over.

Hjørring has been changing in recent years, with new shops and franchises opening mainly outside the city center. The most recent addition to Hjørring is the new city shopping centre, Metropol, which has led to a change in the city centre as one of Hjørring's main streets, Østergade, has been closed to vehicular traffic and is now open only for pedestrians and bicycles. Metropol which was inaugurated in March 2008, is located on Østergade and also houses the city's public library.

Hjørring holds the headquarters of the regional museum of Vendsyssel Historical Museum. It is located in the city center in Museumsgade. Apart from the exhibitions and museum itself, there is a small, publicly accessible park and garden area, that facilitates picnics.

Vendsyssel Kunstmuseum is the main art museum in the province, located in a former textile factory in the city center. It has a considerable collection of artists influenced by the landscapes and surroundings of Northern Denmark, but also presents changing exhibitions of mostly contemporary art.

Education

One of the two branches of Profession School University College North Jutland (Danish: Professionshøjskolen University College Nordjylland) can be found in Hjørring.
