Best Hotels in Aalborg

Aalborg Hotels

Overlooking the sun-dappled waters of the Limfjord waterway, Aalborg is one of the most picturesque places in Denmark. It's dotted with quaint, 17th century houses in the Dutch Renaissance style – an afternoon's wander will let you take in the old sandstone walls and exposed beams that make this a fine city break location. With its theatres and museums, it's also a great cultural hub, but it comes into its own during the spring and summer thanks to laid back vibe and colourful setting.

Things to see

If you enjoy al fresco dining and drinking during perfect warm evenings, Jomfru Ane Gade is where you want to be. This is arguably Denmark's single most famous street, jam-packed with restaurants, cafés, bars and clubs. The terraces come alive with locals and tourists alike, and whether you want chilled out cocktails or a serious night of partying, Jomfru Ane Gade ticks all the boxes. On a sunny day, Aalborg's shimmering harbour is a great place to relax, wander shops and soak up the culture, and it's right next to Jomfru Ane Park, which features an outdoor swimming pool and sauna. A striking landmark is the Aalborgtårnet, a tower offering sweeping views of the whole area, while Aalborg Zoo features its own "African savannah" teeming with tigers, zebras and giraffes. And for a spot of culture, head to the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art, a treasury of masterpieces including works by Ernst and Chagall.

Hotels in Aalborg

Whether you fancy staying in a 4 star, high rise hotel or a more low-key bed and breakfast, there are a good number of hotels in Aalborg to choose from. You can expect to find the sort of mod-cons any 21st century traveller could want, including complimentary WiFi and flat-screen televisions. Even cheaper pads should throw in these facilities, so it's a great destination if you're on a tight budget. Some accommodation also features guestrooms with balconies, ideal if you'd like to sit outside, take in the crisp air and relax with a book while the historic buildings and fjord stretch out before you.

Where to stay

Hotels in Aalborg tend to be clustered in city centre, which is no surprise as it's here that the most popular attractions can be found – whether you want to see perfectly preserved historic houses or go for a soothing amble along the harbour where the boats tranquilly bob. Of course, it's also a doddle to get a little farther out and see the more ancient parts of the landscape. One standout attraction is Lindholm Høje, an awesome Viking burial site where craggy grave markers and carvings can be seen close-up. A museum sheds more light on its myth-shrouded past.

How to get to Aalborg

If you're flying in, it's good to know that Aalborg Airport is only minutes away from the centre by bus or taxi. National and international flights are served there. Once you land in Aalborg, getting around on foot is really the best way to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the eye candy buildings. Of course, you could also opt to rent a bicycle – it's a real pleasure to pedal your way down these old streets, or along the wide sweep of the fjord.
