Jørgen Olufsen's Gård is the best preserved Renaissance merchant house in Denmark. The three-story warehouse is equipped with elevators and the doors to the granaries can be seen.In the gate of Østerågade, right next to Jørgen Olufsen's Gård, there is an iron bar with a large hook. Scales and weights were previously hung on these hooks so that the goods could be weighed in front of the customers and they were not cheated. Seen from Østerågade, the building consists of a stone building with the gable side facing the street and a half-timbered wing.The stone structure with its high steps is richly decorated. The initials of the mayor, Jørgen Olufsen, can be seen above the sandstone portal with male and female minor figures.A little further up in a niche is the figure of a charming woman who is remarkably well-wearing for her 360 years. She is known as the "Aalborg Girl".www-enjoynordjylland-com.translate.goog/north-jutland/plan-your-trip/jorgen-olufsens-house-gdk596068?_x_tr_sl=en&_x_tr_tl=de&_x_tr_hl=de&_x_tr_pto=nui,sc
