The Waterfront Aalborg

Aalborg: Denmark's laid-back city

The vibe in Aalborg is laid back, informal and positive, reflecting the general mood of the people of North Jutland. The onus is on enjoying life and this is reflected in Aalborg's countless bars, gourmet restaurants and cafés. Aalborg is of course also the best place to enjoy the locally produced Aalborg schnapps. Aalborg’s manageable size and intimate environment provides visitors with space – and time – for each other.

Utzon Center

Aalborg, city of culture

Aalborg offers a broad range of cultural city experiences throughout the year, both indoors and outdoors. Enjoy the works of famous artists at KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art, join the colourful street party at the Aalborg Carnival or marvel at the interesting architecture by world-renowned Jørn Utzon, designer of Australia's Sydney Opera House. The music venue, Musikkens Hus, which opened in 2014, is a must-see.
