Our food scene doesn't start and end with Copenhagen. Thankfully, our talent with food spreads over all of Denmark. Local delights like whisky distilled in Thy, sustainable dining hotspots in Aalborg and, of course, oysters and exquisite seafood are nestled all around North Jutland – see Forbes' take on their favourites here. You'll need to build up your appetite, so we've gathered the biggest attractions and the most unique sights in this dynamic region to entice you here too!
An ancient city where Viking ships once sailed past on the Limfjord, Aalborg has evolved to a vibrant cultural hotspot with a spectacular waterfront of iconic architectural buildings. The New York Times even put Aalborg in its Top 10 Places to Go in 2019. Here are 11 reasons why!
If you think we don't do big in Denmark, think again. These jaw-dropping sights will blow you away! From iconic landmarks losing their fight against the powerful ocean, to hidden treasures slowly covered by the sands of time, North Jutland truly is a region of awe-inspiring wonders.
We love Skagen! Slow sunsets over creamy yellow cottages. A light that’s inspired artists throughout the centuries. And most uniquely of all, the seaside town of Skagen is one of the only places in the world where you can physically see two seas collide. That being said, you don't get more Danish than a seaside or beach hotel. Authentic, cosy and always in the most beautiful locations.
Aalborg’s international airport is only 6km from the city centre. You can fly here in just 40 mins from Copenhagen or take the scenic train route from Copenhagen, which takes just over 4 hours. And there are direct flights from the United States and the United Kingdom. Once here, you can explore North Jutland by bus or hire a car for complete freedom!
