Aalborg (Ålborg)

The hip and happening city of the country. This is where you would find the young peppy crowd of University students. The city is a hub for all industrial and educational institutes. Except for famous points like the tripod tower and a newly opened museum, I suggest you to keep one day for this city. One day just to go around the universities and try small local things. This is the place where you would see students lining up small food joints and they are the real delicacy of the city.
