Administratively, Aars is the municipal seat of Vesthimmerland municipality and biggest town of Vesthimmerland municipality, Region Nordjylland since 2007 and it was the seat of the mayor in the now abolished Aars Municipality; the town was founded in the 14th century. It is one of the four principal towns of Vesthimmerland, the other ones being Farsø, Løgstør and Aalestrup. Aars is a former railway town, it is the 76 largest city in Denmark just behind Ribe but in front of Helsinge. It is the 9th biggest town/city in Region Nordjylland behind Sæby; the town has the nickname Cimbri's town. The name Aars first appears in 1345; the site name researcher Svend Aakjær's statement was that it originates from the Old Norse / Old English word árr or ármadr. Which in Danish means the king's earl. Another explanation is. At the church in Aars there is a rune stone with the following inscription: Asser put this stone after his lord Valtoke, The stone proclaims that it will stand here for a long time, it should mention Valtoke's varie.
Valtoke full name was Valtoke Gormsson but he was called Toke Gormsson, he was son of Gorm the old. He died in the Battle of Fýrisvellir and the stone was raised near Aars because he was Earl of Vendsyssel, not too far from Aars, but how it ended up in Aars is not known; the rune stone was rediscovered in Aars in 1654.

In 1875, there were 782 residents in Aars parish. In a description from around that time of the city is said "Aars with Church, Priestegaard and Inn with Grocery Store and Meltyard".

In 1893, the city received a state railway station on the Himmerlandsbaner from Hobro / Viborg via Aalestrup to Løgstør.
In 1899, Aars became Himmerland's railroad junction. The private railway Aars-Nibe-Svenstrup got a terminal here and was extended in 1910 from Aars to Hvalpsund; the Great Rail Act of 1918 opened the possibility that there should be a Himmelland crossroads Aars-Arden-Bælum-Øster Hurup, but this course was never brought, like most projects in this law. Aalborg-Hvalpsund Railway was closed in 1969; as early as 1966, DSB's passenger traffic at Aars Station was terminated. The freight traffic Viborg-Løgstør continued with the expedition station in Aars, but ended in 1999; the station has been demolished, the track was taken up in 2006 and the former railway station is now shopstores. It will be used by the Himmerlands path to Løgstør. Nature trail Nibe-Hvalpsund uses the railway line to Nibe, but follows Løgstørvej in the first 2 km towards Havbro. Aars Municipality was formed by Kommunalreformen in 1970 which made the Parishes into municipalities and in the Aars municipality the town of Aars was the head city/capital/municipal seat of the municipality.
The municipality covered an area of 223 km² and had a total population of 13,284 in 2005. But in 2007, Aars Municipality ceased to exist and was merged with the former Farsø, Løgstør, Aalestrup municipalities to form the new Vesthimmerland municipality, with an area of 768.08 km² and a total population of 38,277. The reason behind the merge was Kommunalreformen which merged many of the now former municipalities into bigger municipalities. Aars Municipality had what is called a Municipality shield, a Cimbrian bull with a red background; the bull symbolized. Though Aars Municipality is a thing of the past, the municipality shield can still be found around the city, for example in manhole covers and in the city entrance sign; the construction of a new bypass revealed 4000 year-old buildings.
