Visit the Aalborg Castle (Aalborghus Slot), which was built by King Christian III in 1539. You can go down to the dungeon and the underground passages during the summertime. The Aalborg Zoo is a great place to see as it houses many giraffes, elephants, and big cats. There are several free-ranging African animals as well at the savanna enclosure. The Lille Vildmose is a great wildlife exhibition center as it is the largest raised bog in Western Europe.
Aalborg is located in northern Jutland and is part of the north Denmark region. Jutland is the mainland connected to Europe and Aalborg is located near the tip of this region. The Limfjord runs through this city, splitting it from the mainland of Jutland. The landscape around this area is beautiful with white beaches, cliffs, sand dunes, and forests.

The largest carnival in all of Northern Europe takes place in Aalborg. It is called the Aalborg Karneval. It happens annually and falls during the last week of May every year. The main events that take place during the week are The Grand Parade, Battle of Carnival Bands, and Children's Carnival. This festivity is open to everyone and is a wonderful depiction of the friendly and welcoming Danish people. Another great activity is to rent a bike and ride along the Limfjord on a nice day. The bicycle route is 650 kilometers long however, you can just do bits and pieces if you aren't up for the lengthy commitment.

To get out of the city for the day, you can take a ferry to Egholm, which is a small island in the fjord. You can spend the day on the beach or hike around to find views of the Limfjord and its surrounding landscapes. Biking is a great way to get around the island.
