Aalborg & Skagen

The citizens of Aalborg are the Europeans who love their own city the most according to a recent survey. No wonder! In this small city you will find a close connection between present and ancient history. The new waterfront has undergone a huge transformation from an industrial site to a vibrant meeting place, where you can enjoy concerts, art, and gourmet dining. Stroll down the streets of Aalborg you can admire huge murals made by international street artists, or pop into one of the city’s many cafés and pubs or the newly build rooftop restaurant. At Lindholm Høje you will find one of the most beautiful ancient monuments in Denmark; a Viking burial site with several hundreds of cremation mounds marked by stones. Here you can literally feel the history.

The yellow painted, red tile-roofed houses in the narrow, winding streets of Skagen make this famous seaside town simply adorable. In Denmark’s northernmost town you will marvel at the world’s largest sandpit - the amazing “Grenen” - where the North Sea and the Baltic Sea collide, and you can stand with a foot in each sea.
