Practical info Aalborg, Denmark

Getting around the city

Aalborg has a good bus system that covers most of the city centre. Rates and schedules are available from the main bus depot on John. F Kennedys Plads. The city centre is also fairly easy to navigate on foot or by using the city's bicycle-sharing initiative, which charges a refundable deposit that is returned when the bike is stowed. Driving in Aalborg is fairly pleasant, and once you figure out the mildly confusing one-way streets it is easy to navigate. There is free short-term parking in most side streets, and commercial lots for longer stays.
