The Utzon Park on Aalborg's new waterfront constitutes a beautiful frame for the architectural pearl, The Utzon Center. The unique concrete benches located in the park were designed by Jørn Utzon.

The Utzon Park is a green oasis in the middle of the busy city and a perfect spot for a coffee break.

Benches meant for Sydney Opera House

Originally, the benches found in the Utzon Park were meant to be placed in the foyer of the Sydney Opera House, but have instead found their place in Aalborg – the city where Jørn Utzon spent the first 19 years of his life. Aalborg, the fjord, the sail boats and the shipyard have served as a great source of inspiration in Jørn Utzon’s designs throughout his career.

The Utzon Park is open for visitors all hours of the day.
