During the Middle Ages, Vejle was important as a market town, and developed along those lines up to the mid-17th century, trading with cities such as Lübeck and Flensburg, in what is now Germany.In the late 17th and early 18th centuries, Vejle's population was diminished as a consequence of plague and war.The first recorded mention of the town is from 1256, and the first known merchant town privileges were issued by King Valdemar III in 1327. Nicolai Church in downtown Vejle have shown that there were residences in the area as far back as 1100.The king's castle, Castrum Wæthel, was located where Vejle Transit Centre is today.In 1796, though, Vejle was made the seat of the newly founded Vejle County, and the town expanded throughout the 19th century, benefiting from improvements such as a new harbour on the fjord, a railroad station, and modern utilities.
From the mid-19th century into the 20th century, Vejle developed from a provincial market town into a busy industrial centre, eventually becoming known as the "Manchester of Denmark" for its many cotton mills.
