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 building has burned to the ground and been re-built several times.
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.
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.
Its central location gave the city great strategic importance, in political and religious matters, during the Middle Ages.
A motte-and-bailey-type castle was once located in the city.
Next to the cathedral is the Skovgaard museum, founded in 1937.
Viborg has over the last decade won a reputation as one of Denmark's leading cities for sports.
Viborg is also the seat of the Western High Court, the High Court for the Jutland peninsula.
Viborg Municipality is the second-largest Danish municipality, covering 3.3% of that country's total land area.
Viborg is also home to The Animation Workshop, an art school based in a former army barracks on the outskirts of town.
The school, which achieved official recognition from the Danish government in 2003, offers students a Bachelor of Arts in character animation.
