Aalborg Tower

Aalborgtårnet is one of Aalborg’s landmarks, and definitely the tallest one. Enjoy a breathtaking view of Aalborg and the North Jutland landscape. Take the elevator 55 metres up and enjoy the incredible 360 ° panoramic view.

With its placement at Skovbakken, the platform is 105 meters above sea level. From here you can enjoy the view with a snack or a drink from the bistro. To get into the Aalborgtårnet, you have to ring the bell which is placed on the tower, and an elevator is sent down. The trip is the highest outdoor elevator of the North and is an experience in itself. 

A view for everyone

The bistro has room for 50 guests, but don’t worry: There is enough view to go round. The 360° panoramic view of Aalborg from the top of the tower provides an opportunity to take a break far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Aalborgtårnet was built in 1933 for Nordjysk Udstilling (Exhibition North Jutland), and because it was too expensive to tear it down, Det Broderlige Skydeselskab bought it for only DKK 5,000. Even though it was built many years ago, the tower is in tiptop condition. Thanks to a thorough renovation in 2005, Aalborgtårnet is ready to serve its visitors for many years to come. For safety reasons, the tower is closed if the weather is too windy.
