    Enjoy a breathtaking view of Aalborg and the North Jutland landscape. Take the elevator 55 metres up and enjoy the incredible 360 degrees panorama. Today, Aalborgtårnet stands as a symbol of the city.Aalborgtårnet was built in 1933 for Nordjysk Udstilling (Exhibition North Jutland), and because it was too expensive to tear it down, Det Broderlige Skydeselskab bought it for only DKK 5,000.With its placement at Skovbakken, the platform is 105 meters above sea level. From here you can enjoy the view with a snack or a drink from the bistro. To get into the Aalborgtårnet, you have to ring the bell which is placed on the tower, and an elevator is sent down. The trip is the highest outdoor elevator of the North and is an experience in itself.

    The museum park borders the city forest, above which the Aalborg Tårnet observation tower rises as a remnant of an exhibition from 1933. Many consider the tower to be the symbol of Aalborg, but the official landmark is the tower of Budolfi Church.Up in the Aalborg Tower, which is a bit reminiscent of a water tower, is a small restaurant, more like a snack bar, whose operators operate the elevator and bring visitors upstairs. In strong winds, the elevator, which is already a bit tired, simply stops, so only patience helps. The elevator has a break in the event of a storm.The restaurant is completely glazed, so you don't stand outside. At the bar there are drinks, small dishes and souvenirs, since you pay for the elevator, but you don't have to eat anything.fejo.dk/de/D%C3%A4nemark/St%C3%A4dte/Aalborg
