Nature in Aalborg
Constructed in the second half of the 14th century, Saint Laurence church was the biggest church in the region at the time. By the beginning of the 1600s, sand drifts began to slowly encroach upon the area around the church, finally reaching it in the 18th century.
Skagens Museum features over 1,800 works from Danish and international artists, roughly covering the period from the 1870s to the 1930s.
The wild winds and waves shape the landscape and dictate the lives of both the humans and animals inhabiting the area.
Denmark is a Viking country and for thousands of years, the Vikings were superior at sea and kings of the battle-fields, dominating the culture and history of Northern Europe.

The Viking age is generally accepted to have lasted from the first Viking raid on the Lindisfarne monastery in Northern England in 793 to the decisive Battle of Hastings in 1066.
Traditionally the Danish Christmas tree is the common spruce type, also known as Norwegian spruce. In more recent time, the common spruce has made way for the Normann spruce as it lasts a bit longer and results in fewer scattered needles on your living room floor by New Year's Eve.
