Skovbakken nature area

Skovbakken was landscaped in the 1820’s in order to create a green area where people could enjoy the view of the city and the fjord. At Skovbakken, you will have access to different experiences – forests, tree tops, and even bats in a former beer cellar.

Aalborg Tower
On the hill, which is 50 metres above sea level, you will find the Aalborg Tower. You can take the elevator to the top and be 105 metres above sea level. Here you will have a beautiful view over the city, the fjord and the southern Vendsyssel. At Skovbakken you will moreover find the sculpture ”Hunner og Kineserpige”, made by Carl C. Bonnesen. Read more about the Aalborg Tower.

Beneath the Aalborg Tower you will find KUNSTEN, Aalborg’s museum of modern art, and close to this, Skovdalen’ s Outdoor Theatre is placed where many events take place in the summer. The parking lot next to the athletic stadium is a start and end point of a 2,5 km illuminated track that makes it possible to exercise in the dark. Read more about KUNSTEN.
