Aalborg is the second largest event hosting city in Denmark, and is located in the Northern part of Denmark, at the gateway to the largest holiday region in Southern Scandinavia. Aalborg is a city of some 120,000 inhabitants, and is easily accessible by air, road or rail.
Aalborg is a multi-faceted city full of contrasts - a city with a lust for life and all of its pleasures. This is a great but manageable-sized city where all the major city attractions are concentrated within short distance of each other. From fast-paced fun to peaceful oases. From a foaming draft beer to sublime gastronomy. From the Viking era to the Middle Ages, to modern art. As an added attraction, the countryside around Aalborg is inviting and beautiful.
The city’s recently restored waterfront has much to offer for the outdoor and curious visitor. With its many open-air sports and recreations areas, the waterfront invites both active guests and those with lust for life. Near the waterfront you will find the architectural astonishing Utzon Center, designed by the architect Jørn Utzon who also designed the well-known Opera House in Sydney.
Aalborg is a relaxed and fun-loving city. That is what conference visitors always notice. It requires no effort at all to fit in with Aalborg’s “feel good” atmosphere. Just take a leisurely stroll through Aalborg’s picturesque, historic centre and you will start to feel great. There are narrow, winding streets, wonky old houses, interesting galleries – and a wonderful selection of cafés, restaurants and exciting shops.
And just outside of Aalborg you have Danish holiday country at its very best. With great bathing beaches, stunning countryside, historic sights and amusements.
One of the essential and unique characteristics of Aalborg is the matter of distance. Here, the major part of the hotels, restaurants, cafés, shops and attractions are placed in or nearby the city centre making it possible to come around without using any means of transport.
