Aalborg Vacation Packages
Central Aalborg sits on the south bank of Limfjorden, a shallow channel that cuts through the Jutland Peninsula and connects Kattegat with the North Sea. In this northern Scandinavian region, daylight hours are long in summer and winters are cosy, especially when a blanket of snow covers the historic streets and the Christmas markets are on.
Find many of Aalborg’s historic buildings around central Algade street. Stand on Gammeltorv, Aalborg’s oldest public square, and hear the carillon of the iconic Budolfi Cathedral. Step back in time at the underground Gråbrødre Kloster to see the ruins of a medieval monastery and learn all about the city’s history at the Aalborg Historical Museum.
Check out the restaurants, cosy bars and modern clubs in bustling Jomfru Ane Gade, or “The Street”. Order an Akvavit, a locally-made schnapps with many different flavors.
It is easy to explore Aalborg on foot or bike, because most attractions are centrally located and the public transport is efficient. Buy the AalborgCard to receive big discounts for a set amount of time. It gives free access to many museums, the Aalborg Zoo and other popular attractions. Discounted car rental, car parking and bus cards are also part of the deal. From April to November, enjoy the free bike-share system and pedal around.
Jomfru Ane Park along the waterfront is a relaxing place in summer. Also near the fjord is the Aalborghus Slot, a castle from the 1500s. It stands in stark contrast with the nearby Utzon Center, created by Jorn Utzon. The Danish architect became world-famous after designing the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Try traditional smørrebrød (open sandwiches) and enjoy the views. Across the water in Nørresundby is Lindholm Høje, the largest Viking burial site in Scandinavia.
Set aside some time to explore the beaches of North Jutland, including Blokhus and Løkken. These are only a 45-minute drive from the city center.
