Hobro is a small and active town of approximately 11.400 inhabitants in the region of North Jutland. It is situated in the beautiful countryside surrounding Mariager Fjord.
The town is historically linked to the Viking Age. Situated only a few kilometres from the town centre are the remnants of Fyrkat - the impressive Viking fortress built around 980 and a live Viking farm stead where you can experience the way of life of the Vikings.
Hobro is the ideal starting point for excursions in North Jutland. Aalborg is is the main city of the region with beautiful old houses, its Museum of Modern Art and the impressive Utzon Center by the waterfront. Further north lies Skagen - the idyllic and mundane seaside resort at Denmark's top where two seas meet.
The city of Aarhus - the second largest city in Denmark, is only an hour's drive from Hobro. Interesting tourist attractions are ARoS and the Old Town.
