Unique place

Take a walk in Fjordbyen

It started as sheds where the fishermen could spend the night and have their boats in the 1930s, but today Fjordbyen is an allotment with some very desirable houses.

Take a walk in the colorful streets and meet the locals for a hand bath at Kulturen, Fjordbyen's bodega and cultural center.

It is also possible to book a tour.

The island in the Limfjord

Walk around Egholm

Egholm is a beautiful island just a few minutes by boat from Aalborg Vestby. On the island, there are 4 hiking routes of varying length, places to eat, road stalls along the way and, of course, beautiful nature. Use our map and get descriptions of experiences along the way.

Wonderful hike

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.

Visit Vestre Fjordpark

One of the new places in the city that is a sure hit in the summer is Aalborg Fjordpark. Here is free access all year round and plenty of life. It is especially popular in the summer, when the body needs to cool down with a dip and an ice cream.

Free attraction

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.

People watching

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.

Museum of Modern Art

THE ART

Designed by the world-famous Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto, assisted by Elissa Aalto and Jean-Jacques Baruël, the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg was completed in 1972, and is an attraction in itself. The museum is built of striking white marble, a style that continues inside with stunning marble floors and copper lamps, also designed by Aalto.

Come and explore the only museum building outside of Finland designed by Aalto, filled with over 4000 works plus temporary and permanent exhibitions.

Great experience for children

Dice 'n Drinks

Coffee and board game evening

Hidden in Sankelmarksgade, a side street to the Boulevard, is the board game café Dice 'n Drinks. In addition to being a cozy café, they have over 700 board games(!) and staff who can quickly help you get started with new games.

In addition, we can add that, second only to Behag Din Smag, they make probably the best barista coffee in town! There are simply coffee connoisseurs who go to Sankelmarksgade to get their coffee.
