Unique city walk
Go on the street art walk
Aalborg is the city in Denmark that has the most street art works measured in terms of number of inhabitants.
Visit Vestre Fjordpark
One of the new places in the city that is a sure hit is Aalborg Fjordpark. Here is free admission all year round and lots of life. It hits especially in the summer when the body needs to cool down with a dip and an ice cream.
Take a walk on the Aalborg Waterfront
At Aalborg Havnefront, something always happens. All year round there are exercising people, but in the summer the waterfront gets a fantastic life with events, people who hang out with brought food and enjoy the view.
It is also a walk on the waterfront that can give you insight into the city's transformation from coal to cultural city, because here are many relics from that time.

Visit Pil Tusindtunge on Egholm
Pil Tusindtunge moved to Egholm during the Great Troll Festival in 2020, and she is still sitting there. A perfect excursion destination for a trip to scenic Egholm.
Go to the End of the World
Lindholm Fjordpark in Nørresundby is a beautiful and slightly overlooked oasis. Here you will find grazing sheep, beautiful paths, a shelter and above all what locals have christened “The End of the World”, a beautiful vantage point in the corner of Fjordparken.
We can highly recommend a trip and maybe even an overnight stay in the shelter.
Take a trip to ART
Whether you are alone, with an adult, or have the children under your arm, the ART Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg is worth a visit.
There are always new exhibitions to explore, here are creative workshops for children, and then there is Café Aalto, which serves impressively good food.
Visit The Singing Trees in Kildeparken
Kildeparken is a beautiful and green little oasis a stone's throw from the city center. It is an obvious place to have a packed lunch and otherwise just sit and watch the life that passes.
However, Kildeparken is also home to a curious experience, namely The Singing Trees, which is an art installation made by Aalborg Congress and Culture Center. Over the years, AKKC has been visited by a host of the performing arts' biggest stars, and many of them have planted a tree in Kildeparken. Next to each tree, you can press a button and listen to a bit of the artist's music. A cozy experience, especially with children.
