The North Denmark Region or North Jutland Region (Danish: Region Nordjylland) is an administrative region of Denmark established on 1 January 2007 as part of the 2007 Danish Municipal Reform, which abolished the traditional counties ("amter") and set up five larger regions. At the same time, smaller municipalities were merged into larger units, cutting the number of municipalities from 271 before 1 January 2006, when Ærø Municipality was created, to 98. North Denmark Region has 11 municipalities. The reform was implemented in Denmark on 1 January 2007.
The North Jutland Region consists of the former North Jutland County combined with parts of the county of the former Viborg County (the former municipalities of Aalestrup Municipality, Hanstholm Municipality, Morsø Municipality, Sydthy Municipality, Thisted Municipality), and the western half of Mariager Municipality (in the former Aarhus County).
One of Denmark's 5 universities, Aalborg Universitet, is situated in the North Denmark Region. Most regional museums are situated in Aalborg such as Nordjyllands Historiske Museum, KUNSTEN, Musikkens Hus, Utzon Center and Zoologisk Have.
