Denmark’s Intimate Cruise Port

Aalborg is a charming city full of contrasts: From ancient Vikings through Middle Age and renaissance buildings to an international city full of modern architecture and culture. The award winning harbour front, where cruise ships dock at Aalborg Royal Cruise Berth, is situated only 200 meters, from the main square, encircled by 300 special shops in a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Beautiful approaches are always a superb kick-off to a fantastic stay. In Aalborg, the approach starts two hours prior to berthing with a fabulous scenic fjord cruise – passing endless cornfields en route. Reaching the unique port of Aalborg, guests will arrive at the waterfront with innovative world-class architecture and exciting park areas.
