Ålborg Things to Do

  • Virgin Ane Street!

    Jomfru Ane Gade (English translation: Virgin Ane Street.) The street, near a convent, was named after a fifteenth century nun known as Ane.What makes this bit of history all the more interesting is to walk down the cobble stone street of Jomfru Ane Gade from end to end. Captivating old world houses have been converted into one of the best nightlife...

  • Alborg Franciscan Friary

    This is quite an interesting place. It contains the underground excavations of the Alborg Franciscan Friary.It shows what went on throughout the ages and displays what was found in the various parts of the Friary. These meant that there was a large amount of people buried, and so expect to see skeletons and bones, even some teeth sticking out the...

  • Danish Entertainment -TIVOLI-

    If you like this kind of entertainment this is great for you. The city council had bought Aalborg Tivoli so you can go in for free.This is not as big as Tivoli in Copenhagen but fun.The park is open 11-22

  • Monestery of the Holy Ghost

    The Aalborg Monestary is the oldest social institution still active in Denmark. Originally founded in 1431 by Maren Hemmings and gained its status as Monastery of the Holy Ghost in 1451. The prior of the monestery in Aalborg gained status as acting Attorney of the Grand Master of The Order of The Holy Ghost in Rome to all of Scandinavia, thus...

  • Lindholm Hills Viking Cemetary (Lindholm...

    Lindholm Hills (Lindholm Høje) is a vast wiking cemetary from the late Iron Age and the Wiking Era, situated on a sloping hill on the North bank of the Liimfiord just opposite Aalborg. The fiord is at its narrowest just here and thus the obvious choice for the connection between Vendsyssel to the North and mainland Jutland. The hill climbs to 42...

Ålborg Restaurants

  • A Fine Place for Refreshment

    When I entered the Aalborg Park Hotel and asked the receptionist if it were possible to get a coffee, she agreeably seated me next to a window in the posh dining room. The kitchen was closed, she said, then kindly offered to have toast made for me.Alone in luxury. That's how I felt. The accommodating service and attention set the mood and the view...

  • Mix with the locals

    We popped in here for a coffee and ended up with an apple pie as well. This is a cosy little place to mix in with the locals.Some of the tables could be reserved, but the place is quite relaxed. We did see others who had what looked like very decent food. One dish seemed to be a good size burger and chips, where the burger was covered in a...

  • Excellent Steaks

    We popped in here for lunch and had a great steak. The staff were friendly and the lunch menu is half the price of the evening but the dishes are the same. Excellent! I had the steak medium rare and it was really tasty. We even went for eat as much as you can ice cream, but only managed one bowl full. I did spot some of the local youths who were...

  • Excellent Micro Brewery

    We popped in for a spot of lunch and a beer or two. Decent food, decent beer, for those non lager drinkers. The prices were too bad either. I had the minced beef with horseradish and raw egg...tasty with a beer! They also did a nice dish of goodies and a chilli concarne, but without the rice.

  • Chinese Food

    This is a very cosy restaurant with Chinese decoration. They have an open buffet with 25 kinds of food you can chose between (103 DKK per person). They also have a reasonable wine selection (we chose an inexpensive Chilean Merlot). The food was very delicious. If you would like to have a real Peking Duck menu, you should inform them 2 days before...

  • Don`t bother

    Booked 3 months in advance via the internet and made this the centrepiece of our visit to Aalborg.When we arrived we found a private wedding party in full swing and were refused entry. Attempts to speak to the manager were denied and the pathetic front door staff tried to claim that an Email had been sent to us (none had been received). We decided...


Ålborg Nightlife

  • Strongly recommended!

    To me personally: A dear old friend. Café Luna has been located here on busy Boulevarden since the mid-1980s, and although it has received an occassional facelift and the ownership has changed several times over the years, still the basic warmth and focus on good café food has been maintained.The place is not particularily big (seeting for aprox....

  • A very decent bar

    I popped in here on a couple of occassions on my trip. The bar is full of locals and serves up some decent beer.We tried to get a round in of 8 Belgium Hoegaarden, but they ran out after 2 so I went for the bottle of decent German Weiss beer Erdinger instead. Smart casual, although they were certainly happy to welcome us in after the match.

  • English Pub

    I don't normally like going in these types of places when I’m away in Europe, as it kind of defeats the object of trying something new when I go away. The John Bull pub was however excellent with the Danish tradition of loving their beer. It had a huge amount of beer taps at the bar, although I’m not sure if they were all working at the time....

  • A street full of bars and clubs

    This street is packed full of bars and restaurants and is a great place to have a pre match drink. The bars are pretty small, but most have some type of music playing and have a dj dance floor of sorts late at night. Euro Pop at some of its best! Casual

  • Nighttime pubs and bars

    The nightlife in Aalborg, especially in summer time is very crowdy! There were so many people in the "bar street" that I could easily lose my friends.. Every bar was filled with people, the music was very loud but people seemed to enjoy it. So if you're a night person and enjoy drinking, get yourself to Aalborg! If you instead do not like the smell...

  • A street full of party

    This is a street with many pubs, discos and restaurants. And in the night it's like a big festivall on the street. Most of the time you don't have to pay an entrence fee for the discos and often a dancing place is included in the bar. It's just fun! Don't dress to warm! In most of the places it's hot inside and you will be not very lucky wearing a...


Ålborg Transportation

  • The Train Station is Close Enough

    The best way to get to Aalborg is by train and the station is just a few blocks from the center of town which makes it easy to visit for a day and see the lovely little town. Also it was by train that I sadly, left. Connie had made for me, a lunch of delicious Danish bread, ham, two kinds of cheese and a Danish pastry, to eat on the train.If you...

  • Think Train

    The train is not a mode of transportation that I would normally use, but during this trip it was a fantastic way to get where I wanted to go. Of course, there were a few moments of panic for me like the night the train's number didn't match the number on the ticket or when I had ten minutes to get from one platform to another and not knowing...

  • Ryan Air to Aarhus

    We took the 07:25 Ryanair flight from London Stanstead to Aarhaus. Then we took the 09:00 bus to Arhus main train station. Cost of one way ticket was DK90Then we took the 11:56 train to Aalborg. The return ticket cost DK314. Not too much to see on the train, although the train conductor was friendly and mentioned that we were sitting in a quiet...

Ålborg Local Customs

  • A Viking Settlement and More

    The bridge to Aalborg spans the Limfjord at it's narrowest point and this fact plays an important role in the development of the city which can trace its roots back a thousand years from a coin documenting "Alabu" (The name given to Aalborg) and gives the date 1040. Aalborg was an ancient Viking settlement and at Lindholm Hoje on the north side of...

Ålborg Off The Beaten Path

  • Hjelmarslald

    A street like this is magical to me. Maybe growing up on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales has something to do with it. Standing at the entrance to this street was like walking into a fairy tale land."Hjelmerstald" is discretely tucked away off one of the pedestrian streets.Small colorful old houses as well as the typical half-timbered...

  • Café Mix: A perfect mix!

    Although it may not be the most obvious place to come by, Café Mix is certainly worth checking out. It was founded 1999 by to former waiters from Aalborg's John Bull Pub, one of which has won the Danish Bartender Championship. The place is quite small - room for some 50 people - and the menu is somewhat ordinary. It is the atmosphere which really...

  • Hidden side streets full of charm

    South of Algade in the main part of the city, you can wander around about 3 or 4 side streets, one of which is named Hjelmerstald. The leaning half-timbered buildings look like they are in the process of falling down, but on closer inspection it appears that the structures have better support than what you see at first glance.


Ålborg Sports & Outdoors

  • Aalborg BK

    My visit to Alborg was for the UEFA Champions League Group Match game.Manchester United played Aalborg BK in the Energi Nord Arena on 30 September 2008. United won 3-0 with goals from Rooney and two from Berbatov, his first for the club.The stadium is a small place and so getting into the ground was easy.

  • Minigolf

    If you would like to have a different attraction you can go to play mini-golf.Adults: 25 DKKChildren:15 DKK

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

  • View From Train Station

    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...

  • Great people and a good university.

    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. One of the best things were the student parties....

  • Tourist service

    I wouldn't call it my favourite thing, but helpful :PFrom Aalborg Tourist Bureau you can get an international camping passport that can be used when travelling in the Nordic countries or international. They sell fishing licenses, Danish Inn Holiday passes, various casebooks/folders and maps, ...Open:1 Jan – 14 June and 1 Sep – 31 Dec: Monday –...
