Subsequently, both the men's handball team and most notably the professional football team have established themselves at the top of the Danish leagues.From 1998 to 2008, Viborg FF was a constant member of the Danish Superliga, reaching an all-time high when winning the Danish cup in 2000.In the science fiction book The Corridors of Time by Poul Anderson, a Danish-American writer who did considerable research on Danish history, a large part of the plot takes place in 16th-century Viborg.
A motte-and-bailey-type castle was once located in the city.
Viborg takes its name from a combination of two Old Norse words: vé, meaning a holy place, and borg, meaning a fort. The construction of the cathedral started in 1130 and took about 50 years.
The school, which achieved official recognition from the Danish government in 2003, offers students a Bachelor of Arts in character animation.
For international parents Viborg also has an international school where all teaching is in English based on the Cambridge International examinations. It is located on the Langå-Struer railway line and offers direct Inter City services to Copenhagen and Struer and regional train services to Aarhus and Struer.
Its current monumental home was built in 1926 to accommodate a larger number of students and later the school added a dormitory to house the many students from outer regions or islands not close to a gymnasium.
Although this role is now basically obsolete, the dorm continues to be a popular solution for many students wanting to get away from home or for a small number of students from Greenland.
Viborg has over the last decade won a reputation as one of Denmark's leading cities for sports.
It started with the city's women's handball team (a popular sport in Denmark), which continues to be one of Europe's top-5 clubs.
Four weeks later I moved to Wales and we moved in together, this was three and half years ago!
