Accessibility in Aalborg is an effort to create social sustainability where all people regardless of functionality, can move in public spaces including buildings, roads and other facilities, independently.

Please contact VisitAalborg for information on accessibility of the city’s facilities. Alternatively, we suggest that you find information from the individual facilities’ websites or contact them directly with your enquiry.

The label scheme ”God Adgang” (translated: good access) has information on the physical conditions and accessibility in buildings and outdoor areas. At godadgang.dk you will find detailed information about businesses and places that are a member of the label scheme.

Nature protection

We encourage everyone to respect and treat nature in the best way possible. That is why we advice you to look up which areas are included in the Natura-2000 protection. The law of nature protection includes a range of provisions concerning general protection of different nature types. Nature-2000 is a term for a network of protected nature, wild animal- and plant species in EU, which are rare, endangered or characteristic of EU and that should be preserved and protected.

A key cornerstone of Natura-2000 is that the authorities in their administration must not implement plans, projects, etc. that could damage species and habitats that the law have been designated to protect.
