HistoryEdit

Pandrup is first mentioned in 1470.[2]

A train station was built in 1913 and was one of the Hjørring-Løkken-Aabybro railroad's largest stations. The station was built by Sylvius Knutzen. It was shut down in 1963.[3]

In the 1970 Danish Municipal Reform three parish municipalities were merged to form Pandrup Municipality, with the municipality's seat and main town being Pandrup. The municipality lasted until 2007 where it was merged with Aabybro Municipality, Fjerritslev Municipality and Brovst Municipality to form Jammerbugt Municipality.[4]
