Founded in 1035

When you visit Aalborg, you’ll soon realise that it’s a relatively old city – but did you know that it is actually one of the oldest cities in Denmark? It is believed that Aalborg was founded around 1035.

Even back then, the city had a good location on the Limfjord and was therefore an obvious choice for trade and industry, which Aalborg quickly became known for at the time. In fact, the city had a somewhat bad reputation for a while as a typical industrial city, focused on producing cement and schnapps.

Today, industry has been replaced by culture, and Aalborg offers a wealth of exciting attractions and activities.
