Denmark // Jutland //


North Jutland’s main city, Aalborg has undergone a renaissance of recent years. Long renowned for its raucous nightlife and nearby Viking burial ground, it’s now redeveloped its waterfront with hugely impressive results to showcase its industrial heritage, while not detracting from its substantial medieval core. It’s also the main transport terminus for the region, and makes an exciting stopover on the way north to Skagen.

Huge investment on the stretch of Aalborg facing Limfjorden has transformed the once industrial waterfront district into a centre for design and entertainment, while there’s plenty of historical charm in the sights and cobbled streets of the old town.
