The town of Hadsund

The town of Hadsund is situated south of the city of Aalborg, and north of the city of Randers. Hadsund was founded in 1854, when the city received commercial space privileges. Before this there had only been a ferry crossing with permission to hold markets on both sides of the fjord. In 1861, a commercial instituted and in 1883 was rail link to Randers, from 1900 also to Aalborg. Hadsund had two stations, namely Hadsund North Station, which lay within the city, and Hadsund South Station, which remains in Hadsund South today. Hadsund North Station was demolished in 1985. The course was closed on April 1, 1969. Today the town has a population of 4,883 (January 1, 2014).[2]


It was founded in 1854, when it received handelspladsprivilegiet. Before, it had been only a ferry terminal with permission to hold markets either side of the fjord. In 1883 a rail link was established to Randers, and in 1900 another to Aalborg. Hadsund had two stations: Hadsund Nord (demolished in 1985) and Hadsund Syd.

There has long been a bridge over Mariager Fjord, which is why a settlement grew up here. From ancient times a bridge went from Hobro to Aalborg via Randers or vice versa. In 1904 a railway bridge over the inlet opened, bringing the hinterland south of the fjord closer to the town.
