While my friend went to a class, I wandered the streets of Alborg and though I saw many wonderous sights, there was much I missed.
I hadn't read a guide book about Aalborg because I hadn't known I'd be in this city, so everything I saw was an unexpected surprise. Which is one of the best ways to explore a city and discover it's treasures.
Aalborg is full of wonderful sights, history and things to do, that it would be a shame not to search out all you can before arriving here if your time in the city was limited as mine was.
Tivoliland, Jomfru Ane Gade, Jens Bang's House, Saint Budolfi Church, Hjelmerstald, the Aalborg Zoo and the Viking museum are just a few suggestions of what should not be missed while visiting the beautiful and historically rich city. Those things I didn't get to would be on my list for the next visit. If there is another chance for me to go there.
The one semester I spend there was wonderful. I stayed there with a good friend, and we got to know a lot of nice people from all over the world, who took also part on the study program. The professors were really good and I got the experience of international group work and practical project work.
Fondest memory: One of the best things were the student parties. They really know how to celebrate!
I wouldn't call it my favourite thing, but helpful :P
