About Haderslev

Haderslev is a Danish town extending 14 kilometers along the Baltic Sea in the valley of Haderslev Fjord. The town is also known as the “Wittenberg of the North”. Haderslev, which is located in Jutland in the south of the country, draws attention with its rich and well-preserved historical centers. The name of the town comes from the mythical king Hate in the ancient times. The coat of arms of the town, which has been an important transition center in fjords throughout its history, consists of a bridge which is the narrowest point between pond and fjord.

You can see the restored buildings dating back to the 1570s while walking on the cobbled narrow streets of Haderslev which officially became a town in 1192. In 1984, the town was chosen as the “European Town of the Year”. You can feel the atmosphere of the old town by walking on the streets having many historical buildings surrounding Torvet, the market square reflecting its deep-rooted history. The huge Dutch-style houses on the square, magnificent cathedrals, 14 sculptures erected in 1987 and its museum documenting the history of the town are among the places to visit.
