Aalborg’s well-preserved old town centres on the Gothic cathedral, the Budolfi Kirke (June–Aug Mon–Fri 9am–4pm, Sat 9am–2pm; Sept–May Mon–Fri 9am–3pm, Sat 9am–noon). On the other side of Østerågade, sixteenth-century Aalborghus Castle is notable for its dungeon (May–Oct Mon–Fri 8am–3pm; free) and underground passages (open till 9pm). Leading down to the waterfront is bar-lined Jomfru Ane Gade, Aalborg’s booziest street.
