In medieval Randers was known for the many convents. However, they were demolished when the king decided to turn the Danes into Protestants instead of Catholics. However, with this happening, there were no longer anybody to take care of the sick and old people. That made the king, Christian the 3rd build a hospital, which was named Randers convent. Today Randers convent houses elder homes, a nursery home and Randers conventchuch with a burial ground connected to it.

 

remember to keep an eyeout for the street "kereveder" it is meant that the name originates from german "turn around" or "kehr(um)wieder".
