Aalborg's waterfront has recently undergone a thorough renovation. It was once Aalborg's industrial heart, but its shipyards and heavy industries had mostly died out by the 1980s. Thus began the waterfront's transformation into a cultural quarter. Now you can experience the world-class architecture, exciting cuisine and cozy cosmopolitan atmosphere.
The waterway – the Limfjord – separates northernmost Denmark from the rest of the Jutland peninsula. Long ago, this was a highway for Viking longboats. Aalborg's roots hail from this era; it was first settled, here at the Limfjord's narrowest point, around AD700.
