Hadsten is a city in central Denmark with a population of 8,028, is the largest city in Favrskov Municipality, located in Region Midtjylland in Central Jutland. Until 1 January 2007 it was the site of the municipal council of the now former Hadsten municipality. Other names for Hadsten are: Hadsten Stationsby. Hadsten has many educational institutions, including a technical school and folk high school. Hadsten is famous for having one of the largest model railways in Europe. Besides that, Hadsten has the shortest pedestrian street in Europe. Pronunciation of the town's name has been the subject of discussion, since locals pronounce the name with a silent "d". Archaeological digs around the city have shown that people have lived in Lilleådalen as far back as 2,000 BC in the Nordic Stone Age; the excavation at the water mill, which became known as Hadsten Mølle, have revealed the remains of an older water mill from around the 1190's in the early High Middle Ages. The present mill originates from the 1400s during the Clausholm Castle era, gained its present name of Hadsten Mølle.
Hadsten was mentioned for the first time in 1432 as Halstiern suggesting to come from the Old Norse word tjærn which means "little lake", while the neck in Old Danish refers to the narrowing the small river valley have of Kollerup Gods. The water level this river at that time has stood 2–3 meters higher than it is today -, why the valley was marked by lakes; the modern city was founded on 3 September 1862. In 2012, the city celebrated its 150th anniversary, with a visit by Frederik, the Crown Prince of Denmark and his wife, Crown Princess of Denmark; the city was at the plant of the East Jutland stretch of railway line, inaugurated on 3 September 1862. Therefore, this date is seen as the city's founding. In September 2012 celebrated its 150th anniversary with the visit of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.

Hørsholm is a rich city on the Øresund coast 25 km north of Copenhagen, Denmark. It covers most of Hørsholm Municipality and straddles the borders neighbouring Fredensborg Municipality and Rudersdal Municipality. Hørsholm proper is developed around Hirschholm Palace which were constructed in the 1730s but the town has absorbed several of the nearby communities that are of much older origins. Hørsholm was founded in connection with the construction of Hirschholm Palace. Niels Eigtved created a plan for a residence town in 1737 and to stimulate its growth, it was given status as market town in 1739. However, it never came to serve as a market town and was still only a small settlement when the palace was demolished between 1810 and 1816. Over the following decades it grew as a local centre for trade. A textile factory known as the Royal Military Textile Factory, had been established in Usserød in the 1790s, it was joined by other industrial enterprises in the second half of the 19th century, such as Hørsholm Textile Factory, Hørsholm Tobakspakkeri og Hørsholm Iron Foundry.
In the 20th, Hørsholm grew together with the neighbouring communities Usserød, Rungsted and Smidstrup. Most Hørsholm has grown together with Kokkedal in Fredensborg-Humlebæk Municipality and Trørød, Vedbæk and Gammel Holte in Rudersdal Municipality. Hørsholm Slotshave, the former gardens of Hirschholm Palace, is the largest public park in Hørsholm. A little to the east of it lies Hørsholm Arboretum, part of the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Science. Hørsholm Cemetery is Hørsholm's largest cemetery. Rungsted Beach is Hørsholm's most popular beach but bathing is possible at Mikkelborg and from several other localities along the coast. Hørsholm is surrounded by a number of small woodlands, they include Rungsted Hegn–Folehave Skov. Kokkedal Skov and Stasevang Skov; the larger Jægersborg Hegn, which separates Hørsholm from Skodsborg to the south, adjoins the extensive UNESCO-LISTED deer park Jægersborg Dyrehave. Trommen is Hørsholm's principal cultural centre and home to its main library. Hørsholm is home to several museums.
Rungstedlund is the former home of the author Karen Blixen and is now home to the Karen Blixen Museum. The Danish Museum of Hunting and Forestry was based in the few surviving buildings from Hirschholm Palace, but i now moved to Randers. Hørsholm is only about 17 km from Jægersborg Dyrehave and Store Dyrehave and some 30 km from Gribskov, all three included in the UNESCO-listed Par force hunting landscape in North Zealand developed by King Christian V in the late 17th century for hunting deer with hounds; the adjacent Hørsholm Local History Museum contains a Struense exhibition. Gammel Holtegård plays host to temporary art exhibitions as well as a permanent archeological exhibition; the small Fuglsangshus is used as a venue for changing art exhibitions. Hørsholm is linked to information technology. DTU science park, a science park now part of the Technical University of Denmark, is home to many technological start-ups. Hørsholm Hospital used to be a major employer but it has now closed; the Danish roof window and skylight manufacturer VELUX, has its company headquarters in Hørsholm.
Rungsted Kyst Station and Kokkedal Station on the coast are located on Kystbanen and served by the Oresundtrains which continue to Copenhagen Airport and across the Øresund bridge to Sweden. The Hørsholm Highway is Denmark's oldest highway and connects Hørsholm to Copenhagen to the south and Helsingør to the north. Which includes several notable people from Hørsholm Civic Alternative
Holte is a suburban district in Rudersdal Municipality on the northern outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark. The local town centre is centred on Holte station and is surrounded by extensive areas of single-family, detached homes as well as several lakes and forests; the district has merged with the old villages of Søllerød and Øverød which both belong to Holte postal district. Gammel Holte, a few kilometres to the east in Rudersdal Municipality but merged with the urban area of neighbouring Hørsholm, predates what is now called Holte by several hundred years. Modern Holte is located on land; the name Holte referred to the medieval village of Holte located a few kilometres to the northeast of the modern district. When the owner of Holtegård moved his inn to a new site on Kongevejen in the 1780s, he gave it the name Ny Holte Kro; this name was adopted for the local railway station when the North Line opened in 1864. The name of the station and the surrounding district was changed to Holte while the name of the old village was changed to Gammel Holte.
The Søllerød Town Hall, completed in 1942, was designed in the Functionalist style by Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen. The town centre contains the Holte Midtpunkt shopping centre. Holte Church was completed on the top of Geel's Hill in 1945. Several lakes are located in the Holte area. There is a small leisure craft harbor and a beach at Vejlesø, connected to the larger lake Furesø on the western boundary of the district by a canal. A small ferry operates on the two lakes in the summer time. Søllerød Lake separates Holte from Søllerød to the east. Holte borders on the natural areas Vaserne, Rude Forest, Søllerød Naturpark and Geel's Forest. History
Rønne is the largest town on the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. It has a population of 13,579. Once a municipality in its own right from 1970 until 2002, when Bornholm was a county with an area of 29.11 square kilometres, it is now the administrative centre of the Bornholm municipality. As of 2018 11,539 inhabitants live in Rønne Parish, a narrow piece of land on the westernmost of the island and stretching north and southward comprising around a third of the area of the former municipality. Knudsker Parish made up the rest of the former municipality. Not all inhabitants of either Rønne or Knudsker parishes live in the city of Rønne. Owing to its natural harbour and its strategic position in the Baltic Sea, Rønne has an interesting history coming under German and Swedish influence during its development as a herring fishing port. Today, with its cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and interesting museums, it attracts visitors from Denmark, Germany and Poland. Rønne originated around the year 1000 when a small fishing community grew up around the natural harbour.
Around 1275, a small chapel dedicated to St Nicolas was built on the site where Rønne's church now stands. The community was soon granted the status of a market town with its own mayor and council and its own law court. However, by the beginning of the 14th century, the King of Denmark, the Archbishop of Lund and various north German princes were all competing for control of the town; the Germans took a special interest in Bornholm because of its strategic position in the Baltic Sea between the German coast and Visby in Gotland, off the coast of southern Sweden, at times establishing their own interests in the town. After the church's expansion in 1360, the parish of Rønne was established; as its trade prospered, by the beginning of the 15th century Rønne was plundered and burnt by men from Lübeck. In 1525, they took control of Bornholm as compensation for the large debts that Denmark was unable to repay, they allowed their own merchants to establish businesses in Rønne. Though the Lübeckers contributed to the success of the fishing trade, they demanded ever-higher taxes from the local population.
The citizens took revenge, chasing the Lübeckers off while allowing other German communities to remain. The result was; however the Baltic Sea had by this time lost much of its strategic importance. The fishing industry declined and after the town was twice struck by the plague in 1619 and 1655, it took decades for it to recover. A further setback occurred in April 1658 when, in the midst of the Dano-Swedish war, Denmark ceded Bornholm to Sweden under the Treaty of Roskilde; the occupation was however short-lived as the Swedes were overcome by the local population in December of the same year. In 1834, Rønne Town Hall was built on the town's main square; this important building was the centre of administration in Rønne and Bornholm for many years, the island's courthouse and jail were there. At the end of World War II, on 7 and 8 May 1945, the town was bombed by Soviet aircraft when the commandant of the German occupying forces refused to surrender; the air raid destroyed 212 houses, but only ten civilians were killed, the population having been alerted in advance.
Although the rest of Denmark had been liberated on 4 May, the Soviets occupied Bornholm on 9 May, sending the Germans back to Germany. The Soviet Union did not leave until 5 April 1946 when an agreement was reached with the Danish authorities and the island came under Danish rule once more. Most of the houses in Rønne were destroyed or damaged by the bombs and it took several years to rebuild the town, retaining its traditional architecture, quaint streets and half-timbered houses; the Swedes contributed 300 timber houses to the town while the rest of Denmark including Greenland and the Faroes raised the considerable sum of 8 million Danish kroner to help rebuild the town. Climate is temperate Oceanic climate with balanced temperatures year round. Island's climate allows local variety of common fig trees, Bornholm's Diamond, to thrive in locality lying far out of its normal habitats; the economic status of Rønne grew during the Middle Ages with the development of the herring industry. However, by the late 16th century, the fishing industry had begun to decline and for the next 300 years there was no further growth.
The ceramic industry in the town surpassed that of the fishing industry and has continued into modern times, with as many as 50 ceramics shops in Rønne today. However tourism is now the most important contributor to the local economy: there are several notable sandy beaches in the area used by tourists. Rønne became famous for its longcase clocks or Bornholmerure which were manufactured from the middle of the 18th century until around 1900. Interest in clock-making started when a Dutch ship sailing from England ran aground off Rønne in 1744 carrying five grandfather clocks which were damaged in the accident. In view of the clocks' value, the sailors called on Poul Ottesen Arboe, a local turner, able to repair them; as a result of the experience he gained in the repair work, he was able to manufacture clocks himself, giving birth to a new local industry. Several workshops soon began to produce Bornholm clocks which became popular as they were cheaper than the more authentic models produced elsewhere.
There were about 30 different clockmakers in the town at the beginning of the 19th century. By the 1840s, some 2,000 cl
Glostrup is a Danish town in Region Hovedstaden, forming one of the western suburbs of Copenhagen. It is the administrative seat of Glostrup Municipality, with an estimated population of 22,357 as of 2015. During the 20th century Glostrup developed from a small railroad town into a modern middle class suburb; the population reached a peak during the 1970s flight from central Copenhagen, but has since stabilized. While most of Copenhagens western suburbs are dominated by public housing projects, Glostrups mix is around the Danish average. A series of large companies, e.g. Grontmij's and Motorola's Danish sections, along with NKT Holding and Pandora are situated in the area. Along with the surrounding municipalities, it forms the center of Copenhagen's productive industry. Glostrup Municipality has a total of 21,200 jobs in the public sectors combined. Glostrup is home to a series of public offices and institutions, e.g. Københavns Vestegn Police Departement and Glostrup Court, covering the western and northern suburbs of Copenhagen.
Glostrup Hospital employs 3,200 people. The village of Glostrup was established some time between 1000 and 1197 and is named after its founder Glob; the village is first mentioned between 1186 and 1197 as Glostorp, but Glostrup church is from around 1150, indicating that a well-established community was found at the site at this point. Most of the owned land came under Roskilde Cathedral over the next couple of centuries but was confiscated by the Crown after the Reformation in 1536. Sources from 1682 indicate that the soil in the area was quite fertile as the village consisted of eight farms and 13 houses. Most of the smallholders worked for the farmers. In 1773, when the new Roskilde Road was constructed between Copenhagen and Roskilde was constructed, it became the main road of the area. Glostrup was a station on the new railway, Denmark's first, which opened between Copenhagen and Roskilde. Glostrup changed character and the population grew during the last decades of the century. A poorhouse was established in 1862 and it was followed by a pharmacy in 1864, a new school in 1876 and telephone connection in 1886.
An increasing number of industrial enterprises established in the area. Lever Brothers opened a soap factory in 1924. Glostrup Housing Association was founded in 1943 as a part of the expansion of the Danish capital and as an answer to the growing housing demand in general; the growing population combined with the miserable living conditions in the central city led to a series of national plans to expand the number of housing units. While the supporters of the Glostrup Housing Association, predominantly Social Democrats, stressed the need to maintain local control of the expansion plans, opponents criticised the building of public housing in the municipality; the largest project of the association was the building of 1,200 housing units in relation to the building of Glostrup Hospital. They were built between 1956 and 1965 defining Glostrup as a suburb rather than a village. Other large plans included the erection of the Hvissinge Plan. Transport in Glostrup has been dominated by the railroad station opened on the first Danish railroad in 1847 between Copenhagen and Roskilde.
During the expansion of the motorways around Copenhagen in the port-war period Glostrup became a central note in the new transport geography of the larger Copenhagen area. While the railroad had a halt in Glostrup, a station was built in 1918 to serve the local economy, it was designed by Heinrich Wenck. In 1953 the S-train network was expanded to Glostrup.
