Signalbakken - Signal Hill

You will find a beautiful panoramic view over Aalborg at Signalbakken (Signal Hill). At the Hill you will find Hvilehøj (Rest Hill) and Signalhøj (Signal Hill) which are two mounds. Signalhøj is the tallest with its 52 metres.

From different excavations, there is evidence that people from the early Stone Age have been living there.  

The name, Signalbakken, comes from the last half of the 1800s when a signal mast, signalling the arrival of ships from Copenhagen to Aalborg, was placed on the hill.

Signalbakken is now the only thing left of the vast moor and pasture area that once grew around Aalborg.

Signalbakken was preserved in 1969 and since 2009, Vejgård Plejelaug has taken care of the maintenance of Signalbakken in cooperation with Vejgård Council, the Danish Society of Nature Conservation and Aalborg Municipality.
