Enjoy a breathtaking view of Aalborg and the North Jutland landscape. Take the elevator 55 metres up and enjoy the fantastic view -  an incredible panorama. Today, Aalborgtårnet stands as a symbol for the city but it was built as a temporary tower. 

Aalborgtårnet was built in 1933 for Nordjysk Udstilling (Exhibition North Jutland). As it was too expensive to tear down, Det Broderlige Skydeselskab bought it for DKK 5,000.

Skovbakken and the maginificient view
With its placement at Skovbakken, the platform is 105 meters above sea level. From here you can enjoy 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.  

Aalborgtårnet is open from April to October and during the Autumn holiday In case of bad weather, the tower will not be open.
