Hjorring

HJORRING, an ancient town of Denmark, capital of the amt (county) of its name, in the northern insular part of the peninsula of Jutland. Pop. (1901) 7901. It lies 7 m. inland from the shore of Jammer Bay, a stretch of coast notoriously dangerous to shipping. On the coast is Lonstrup, a favoured seaside resort. In this neighbourhood as well as to the south-east of Hjorring, slight elevations are seen, deserving the name of hills in this low-lying district. Hjorring is on the northern railway of Jutland, which here turns eastward to the Cattegat part of Frederikshavn (23 m.), a harbour of refuge.
