Aalborg
 
Aalborg

Aalborg is located in the north of Jutland. The local tourist board calls it the little Paris of the North. Although this may seem a bit far fetched, the location by the Limfjord is truly superb, and the town is well worth a visit.
Founded by the Vikings, Aalborg has developed into one of the busiest trading centres in Denmark. The city is buzzing of life summer and winther and if you take a walk down the pedestrian area you will find that there is a great athmosphere and a lot of fine old buildings. Jens Bang's House from 1624, JArgen Olufsen's House from 1616 and the lovely Aalborghus from 1539 deserve special mention. The 15th century Budolfi Cathedral - dedicated to the English St. Botolph - and the Monastery of the Holy Ghost from 1431, Denmarks oldest social welfare institution, also bear witness to the city's busy past.
Aalborg is a lively place with lots of things going on at night. The centre of the city of Aalborg has a network of pedestrian areas lined with shops, cafes and restaurants, festivals, discotheques and not to forget almost 300 restaurants, where you can find everything from classic danish cuisine to exiting ethnic specialities. Jomfru Ane Gade - Northeuropes longest amusement street is a chapter on its own, especially in the evening where there is a lot of action and people in a festive mood.
For those who like vintage trains, the Aalborg Vintage Steam train runs every Sunday in the summer from the main city railway station, and the price for this is very reasonable. Staffed by a band of dedicated volunteers, it is a consist of a lovingly maintained 1916 built steam locomotive and wooden 4-wheel coaches.
From Aalborg, it is not far to the white beaches of the North Sea, to the forest of Rold, the lovely Rebild Hills or the slopes of the Jutlandic Ridge. Great places to go for a hike or a ride on your bike.
