    Aalborg's waterfront has recently undergone a thorough renovation. It was once Aalborg's industrial heart, but its shipyards and heavy industries had mostly died out by the 1980s. Thus began the waterfront's transformation into a cultural quarter. Now you can experience the world-class architecture, exciting cuisine and cozy cosmopolitan atmosphere.The waterway – the Limfjord – separates northernmost Denmark from the rest of the Jutland peninsula. Long ago, this was a highway for Viking longboats. Aalborg's roots hail from this era; it was first settled, here at the Limfjord's narrowest point, around AD700

    The Utzon Center, the last work by Jørn Utzon - the architect behind the Sydney Opera House, is located on the harbor area of the Limfjord. A dynamic and experimental culture and knowledge center. The center forms the framework for art, architecture and design as well as an experimental knowledge center and is located in beautiful, green surroundings directly on the Limfjord. Utzon created an active and dynamic hub for architecture, design and art.

    Aalborg Waterfront is the harbor promenade for delicious walks.
    Not so long ago the Aalborg coast consisted mainly of industry and the Nordkraft coal-fired power station.
    However, it has been changed to the extent that the waterfront has now been converted into a longer recreational area that combines delicious restaurants, cultural establishments like the Music House and Utzon Center with recreational areas like Virgin Ane Park, which hosts many events in the summer.
    There are only the old railway sleepers in the ground, a few old silos and then Aalborg Portland on the horizon, which bear witness to the time when the waterfront looked more like coal than culture.
    You can stroll from the music house to Vestre Fjordpark and discover good restaurants along the way such as Aalborg Street Food and Vestre Bådelaug.
