Christian gift

Parken Christiansgave is the oldest city park in Hjørring. In 1821 it was established as a nursery school and in 1843 was donated to the city by King Christian VIII.

Over the years, the park has been transformed from an area for tree cultivation to a recreational area where constitution parties were held. The original size of the park has been reduced due to various developments, but it remains a central green oasis. It has a small building, known as the "nut sod house", which was designed by architect Jens Jakobsen in 1914. The park underwent landscape renovations in 2005, including the addition of themed gardens and the restoration of its natural elements.
