For more than a century, Spinderihallerne, an old cotton mill from 1896, was the industrial backbone of the city’s working-class neighbourhood, Vestbyen. In those days, Vejle was the nation’s principal mill town, known as “Denmark’s Manchester”– a pioneer within the cotton industry, which once employed 25 percent of the city's industrial workforce.
The newly restored industrial complex is also home to some of the city’s new micro-industries and creative studios.
In 2013, the city’s new heritage museum, the Vejle Museums - Kulturmuseet Spinderihallerne, opened its doors at the old cotton mill. New interactive exhibitions relates the amazing story of how Vejle was transformed from a sleepy provincial town into a thriving industrial city.
