Living in Aalborg

Aalborg is a cultural hub in Denmark, so expats living in Aalborg will never be short of things to do. For example, you will be able to visit the Aalborg Historical Museum, the Aalborg Museum of Modern Art, or the more recent Utzon Center; a museum of modern art, architecture and design that cuts a striking shape across the skyline. Looking at the theatres, symphony orchestra, opera company and other performance venues, it will come as no surprise that Aalborg is known as ‘The Paris of the North’. Much like Paris, Aalborg is steeped in history, with the earliest settlements dating back to around AD 700. Expats interested in history may like to visit the Cathedral of St. Budolf, constructed at the end of the 14th century in Gothic style. A great way to find out more about life in Aalborg is to connect with other expats on InterNations. Expats living in Aalborg will be able to share their experiences of the best places to go and things to see.

Moving to Aalborg

Expatriates moving to the fourth most populous city in Denmark may need a little help. Whether looking for information on healthcare, transport, housing or schools, expats already living in Aalborg are likely to have the answers. InterNations is a platform that enables the local expat community to connect and communicate through forums and discussion groups. When moving to a new city, it’s handy to know that there is a place to find information from other expats who have done it all before. InterNations has discussion groups on everything from sports and leisure to storage and socializing, so expats can get in touch with each other to make relocation easier.

Working in Aalborg

A number of hugely successful industries have made Aalborg a global exporter. The city’s export business was once founded on grain, cement and the famous Scandinavian spirit; akvavit, but more recently has found success exporting wind turbine rotors. Aalborg has a reputation for promoting sustainability, with the First European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns being held there in 1994. A move away from traditional industry and towards green energy, knowledge-based companies and telecoms has meant that Aalborg still has a thriving workforce. Expats seeking help with working in Aalborg can utilize the resources on InterNations by networking with other expats, and searching for information on visas, jobs, salaries and opportunities. Expat Magazine, published by InterNations, also has vital information on topics relevant not only for any expat looking to work in Aalborg, including general articles on insurance, finance, working and living abroad.

Hello everyone! Let's enjoy the nice early summer time by having a barbeque at Mindeparken :) I recommend you bring your own one-time grill and something easy to grill on it - e.g. hotdogs and burge
