Tucked away in the north of Denmark, you’ll find the charming city of Aalborg. While Copenhagen draws the main tourists, Aalborg is still a relatively hidden gem to visit. This ancient city is graced with uber-modern architecture alongside quaint pastel-coloured cottages. Foodies, particularly, are attracted to the fine restaurants here, while beer aficionados can take on the infamous beer walk. It’s also a jumping-off point for exploring the windswept beaches and bird colonies of North Jutland. Whether you’re looking for a boutique hotel in the city centre or a spa resort, here are the best places to stay in Aalborg.
