  • Explore Aalborg's old town in Denmark

    2010-08-31

    Part of the appeal of Europe travel is discovering a few of the cities that are below the radar. While Paris, Rome and London never disappoint, they're far from the only sights worth seeing.

    One city that many may not have heard of but is still worth a visit is Aalborg, in Denmark. Unlike major Denmark cities like Copenhagen, Aalborg is actually on the European mainland, yet is still located on the water.

    The main attraction of Aalborg is the town's amazingly well-preserved old town district. Travelers will be drawn to the medieval Aalborghus Castle, which is still standing from medieval times, along with a range of house located around it.

    Aalborg has a few other attractions as well - the Elbjorn, an old ice-breaking vessel, is now open for tours and contains a bar and restaurant onboard. Travelers can also take a tour of a Viking graveyard. And those who are in town in May can take part in Aalborg's carnival, a celebration that the entire city turns out for.

    Sports fans may also want to check out the Aalborg BK soccer team, one of the better squads in the Danish Superliga.
