North Jutland: Aalborg and Around

North Jutland, at the very top of Denmark's Jutland peninsula, is known for its special light and more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in Denmark, inspiring artists throughout the centuries. Aalborg is the vibrant regional capital with a large student population and a strong maritime history. Visit for dramatic art and iconic architecture or to experience the blossoming culinary scene. The landscape west and north of Aalborg is beautifully raw, with endless beaches, dunes, cliffs, heathland, and forests. Cap it all off with a trip to the northernmost point, Skagen, where two seas meet for an unforgettable natural experience.
