The roots of today’s port city of Randers also lie in the Viking age. At that time Randers was a popular settlement of the Nordmannen, as the location was extremely convenient. However, when the time of the Vikings passed, the settlement was also abandoned, and for decades nothing was rebuilt in this place.
In the 11th century, the village was revived by fishermen and merchants and received its current name. However, the city was destroyed many times during the growing up phase, several times by fires. In the 12th century alone, this happened three times, as the peasants were rehearsing uprisings against the authorities and were proceeding very rigorously.
Despite these circumstances, Randers was finally granted city rights in 1302 and the trade of the port city led to prosperity and growth. The river Gudenå, which flows through Randers and flows into the Randersfjord, favored the location of the city, so that it is only 25 kilometers from the coast of the Kattegat.
