One of the city's most beautiful architectural monuments is Jens Bang's House built in 1624. The house belonged to a wealthy local merchant, whose name it still bears. The majestic building is a vivid example of the Dutch Renaissance, its facade has managed to preserve many unique original elements of decoration. Currently, the historic building is a venue for various official and solemn events; on its ground floor is the city's oldest pharmacy that was opened more than 300 years ago.
The Church of our Lady is among the city's prominent religious attractions. In the 12th century, it was part of a large Benedictine monastery that hasn't survived to our days. One of the main symbols of the church is its gold-decorated organ installed inside in 1961. Also, visitors to the church will be able to admire an antique wooden chair, which has been standing here since 1581.
Walking through the Gammeltorv (Old Market), you can see another important architectural monument of Aalborg - the olf Town Hall building. The magnificent Baroque building that we can see today was built in 1762. In recent years, the purpose of the building has significantly expanded. Today, besides hosting receptions of official delegations, it is also a venue for holding various public cultural events.
