Straddling the Limfjord at its narrowest, Aalborg, with its roots dating back to the year 692, became a very important Viking market and trading port. This commercial influence continued and is still evident in the city's make-up today, a modern, vibrant, shopping town with a restaurant and café culture to match.
This walking tour offers a unique insight into Aalborg's history from its beginnings through to today. It provides a glimpse of both sides of the social divide: from wealthy merchants to ragamuffins and witches; where the west of the city did not meet the east of the city.
Let your imagination wander as we stroll along streets and lanes that, if only they could, would tell such wonderful stories, as well as tales of brutality and abject poverty, which led to amazing acts of benevolence. Hear also about the incredible story of Denmark's first resistance group during the Nazi occupation; see its home right in the centre of the city. Yes, in Aalborg there's so much to see and hear. Welcome.
