About Silkeborg

Silkeborg is a city in central Denmark. Located in Silkeborg municipality in Jutland, the development of Silkeborg as a modern city may be traced to the foundation of the paper mill by Michael Drewsen on the Gudenaa in 1844. The city is divided north and south by a lake, the Silkeborg Langsø, which at the eastern side of the city, resolves into the Guden River (Gudenaa)
