Kildeparken is one of the oldest parks in Aalborg, and each year it is home to a variety of different activities. In Kildeparken you can find classical pieces of work made by famous sculptors, an impressive fountain as well as the interactive Park of Music. Kildeparken is located right next to Aalborg Culture & Congress Centre, allowing you to explore the outside of this venue as you walk around in the park.


In the middle of Aalborg you can find Mølleparken, a green oasis located right behind the art museum KUNSTEN. Here you can find a lit running trail as well as an outdoor fitness area. From the top of the hills in the park there is a magnificent view of Aalborg, the Limfjord and the small island Egholm. You can also see an impressive sculpture by Israeli artist Rolf Roda Reilinger, as well as a relaxing area with an unusual flora.
