History[edit | edit source]

Until 1 January 2007 Mariager municipality was a municipality in Aarhus County on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula in central Denmark and the main town and site of its municipal council was the town of Mariager.
Mariager municipality ceased to exist as the result of The Municipality Reform of 2007 when part of it was merged with existing Arden, Hadsund, and Hobro municipalities to form the new Mariagerfjord municipality and belonging to Region North Jutland. The remainder was merged into an enlarged Randers municipality. [1]
