Aalborg

Trip Planner Europe  /  Denmark  /  Jutland  /  North Jutland  /  Aalborg
Aalborg is an industrial and university city in the North of Jutland, Denmark. As of 1 January 2014, it has a population of 130,853, making it the fourth most populous city in Denmark. With a population of 205,809, the Municipality of Aalborg is the third most populous in the country after Copenhagen and Aarhus. By road Aalborg is southwest of Frederikshavn, and north of Aarhus.The earliest settlements date to around AD 700. Aalborg's position at the narrowest point on the Limfjord made it an important harbour during the Middle Ages, and later a large industrial centre. Architecturally, the city is known for its half-timbered mansions built by its prosperous merchants. Budolfi Church, now a cathedral, dates from the end of the 14th century and Aalborghus Castle, a royal residence, was built in 1550. Today, Aalborg is a city in transition from a working-class industrial area to a knowledge-based community. A major exporter of grain, cement, and spirits, its thriving business interests include Siemens Wind Power, Aalborg Industries, and Aalborg Portland. These companies have become global producers of wind turbine rotors, marine boilers and cement.
