This industrial and university city situated in northern Denmark boasts a beautiful town with the proud title of “the happiest city in Europe”. The wonderful waterfront has recently been renovated and is definitely a favourite amongst the locals. The culture of the city stems all the way back to the time of the Vikings and beyond. So, whether it is the stunning nature, the kind locals, or your love for the sea, Aalborg is a fantastic trip for all.
Things to do in Aalborg
This Danish city has a lot to offer. Taking a walk through the old town in Hjelmerstald is a wonderful way to see Aalborg. This romantic area has lovely little craft shops and a very relaxing atmosphere. It was originally a street with four houses and had many stables for the city’s horses. If you are looking for a more action-filled adventure, travel to the Aalborg coast and take part in one of the region’s many water activities: fishing, kayaking, or sailing! Also, if you are looking to enjoy nature (while staying dry!), there are many parks and recreational areas in and around Aalborg!
History & Culture
For lovers of the arts, we recommend the Utzon Center. It is a masterpiece that combines exhibitions, education, art, architecture and interactive designs! It is situated right at the waterfront so you can visit it and still see the beauty of the area afterwards. If you are more interested in the history of Aalborg, you should visit the Lindholm Høje Museum. The museum dives into the rich history of the Vikings in Aalborg through reconstructions, historic relics, and the original burial site after which the museum is named. There are plenty of museums and cultural places to visit in Aalborg, although be sure to check their opening times online beforehand to ensure you are not left disappointed!
The locals will tell you there’s only one street you need in order to have a good night in Aalborg – Jomfru Ane Garde! As the longest street in Denmark, you can be sure that you will find something no matter what the occasion may be. There are comedy clubs, music venues, restaurants and plenty of pubs and clubs! We recommend The Irish House and Søgaards Bryghus (Missing Bell Brewpub), although we know wherever you end up, you’ll love the food, love the beer, and love the locals! So, what are you waiting for, book your FlixBus to Aalborg now!
