About Aalborg

Aalborg is a city of contrasts. On one hand, dynamic, up to date and international. On the other, an ancient Danish provincial capital that has always cherished its history and unique atmosphere. There are narrow, winding streets, wonky old houses, interesting galleries – and a wonderful selection of cafés, restaurants and exciting shops.

What to see and do in Aalborg

Aalborg is like a box of chocolate – one sweet surprise after another comes to you. Do you love shopping, architecture, wonderful restaurants or simply just enjoying the city life – Aalborg is a perfect spot!

the water frontSydney has its world-famous opera house on the waterfront designed by Jørn Utzon. Now Aalborg has its own waterfront masterpiece; designed by that very same Utzon. The water front is going through a huge developmental process these years and is turning into a green, beautiful and lively area just in the city centre. Take a walk along the water front; enjoy Utzon’s masterpiece and the energy of the area.

In a small side street, Nørregade, away from the water front you will find the glassblower, Lene Højlund, and boutiques with imaginative fashions. On the street Boulevarden, you will find the Penny Lane bakery, speciality store and café you, where you will find homemade blueberry jam, lemon curd and a well-aged Samsø cheese.

In an old courtyard in the centre of town is Lange Kunsthåndværk (art and crafts). The workshop and gallery is located in Hjelmarstald, where you should also take a stroll in the area, where the houses are beautiful and it’s hard to avoid a little window-peeping. When you return to Aalborg’s shopping high street, Algade, you can disappear under ground if you need to seek refuge. In Algade, outside the Salling department store, a glass elevator takes you down to an old monastery. Here you can put yourself into the friars’ daily life 750 years ago, far removed from the hectic street life bustling overhead. When you are back in the street again, you should allow yourself a visit to the wonderful little tea shop, Kronen. The atmosphere is fantastic and the selection of teas is tempting. Next door you will find the lovely chocolate shop, Summerbird, with a wide selection of tasteful chocolate.A fountain

There are numerous galleries in the city; including one named Artbreak Hotel in Rantzausgade. If art stimulates the appetite, the trendy restaurant; Mortens Kro, is just in the neighbourhood.
