Aalborg is a small city in the north of Denmark with a big heart. It’s a student town, home to Aalborg University, and the lively nightlife and cultural scene reflect that. But Aalborg is also a charming, historic city with a well-preserved old centre. The Jutlandic architecture is a mix of half-timbered houses and gabled roofs, and the cobbled streets and narrow alleys are a delight to wander. Aalborg is also a great base for exploring the rest of North Jutland, with its stunning coastline, sandy beaches and forested hills. Don’t miss the chance to visit Aalborg’s sister city, Groningen in the Netherlands, just a short train ride away.
