Vejle is a picturesque town located at the head of Vejle Fjord. The most impressive sight of the town is St. Nicolai Gothic church - one of Vejle's oldest buildings, dating back to the 1250s. The church contains one of Denmark's finest bog findings, an Iron Age woman from the year 450 BC, discovered in the Haraldsaer bog in 1835. Other landmarks are: the windmill built on the slopes of the hills to the south, which is a symbol of the town, the Egtved Girl, that was discovered in 1921 and is one of the best preserved Bronze Age findings in Denmark. On the site where she was found a barrow with a diameter of 22 metres and a height of 4 metres has been built. Norup Church dates back to the 13th century and contains a Romanesque font as well as a number of plaques commemorating the Danish soldiers who fell during the 1848 and 1864 wars.
