Fountains in Aalborg

Where Viking graves and modern art coincide

A city break packed with culture? Book flights to Aalborg and visit the Jens Bangs Stenhus or the Vor Frue Kirke in the historic city centre. Take the lift down to the underground Franciscan Monastery Museum where admission is determined by the visitor’s weight. Or visit Lindholm Høje, located on the other side of the Limfjord, the channel along which Aalborg is situated. The unique graves date back to the Iron Age and the days of the Vikings.

Jaw-dropping architecture

Aalborg features unique and bold architecture, such as the Utzon Center, named after the architect who designed the building, Jørn Utzon. He also designed the Sydney Opera House. Taste the smørrebrød in the restaurant and stroll through the fascinating building where you will see many other architects, designers and artists. For even more art visit the KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art Aalborg which displays works by artists like Le Corbusier and Picasso. The unique light in the building gives the paintings an additional dimension. Complete your day with a concert at the ultra-modern Musikkens Hus. Aalborg is not only perfect for a city trip but also makes a great starting point for a longer holiday in Denmark. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Aalborg now! 

Enjoy the view with a glass of aquavit

Play golf, relax by the water, go shopping and enjoy the nightlife: Aalborg offers more than cultural attractions. Take the lift to the top of the Aalborgtårnet observation tower. Order a bite or a drink as you take in the fabulous view of the city and North-Jutland. Sample a glass of aquavit for example, produced at a famous local distillery. Are you travelling with children? Then explore the savanna, jungle and Antarctica regions at the Aalborg Zoo. At the Defence and Garrison Museum children can climb inside the cars and planes and onto the motorcycles. So keep your camera ready!
