Architecture of this building is very nice and has a water fountain right next to it that spouts water several times during the day. It is right on the waterfront and next to where we were docked in Aalborg.

Next to waterfront of Aalborg, great spot to enjoy the city. I did not get to see the fountains playing, but would be great spots during spring to sit and enjoy the beautiful waterfront view and enjoy the shopping and cafes nearby.

We passed here on our tour. I’m sure the fountains are lovely when they’re playing with music but they’re otherwise fairly boring. Probably a nice place to sit on a warm day though.

Kids are allowed to dip their toes in the fountains :-) From here you can easily walk to the fjord and to the shopping streets.

These pyramids of circles jet water at varying speeds and patterns. Being located on the town square means that you Can eat and drink while your kids play. It was interesting that a lot of the locals did the same with their kids as well....More

This square is a nice place to take a walk or to seat on a bench during a sunny day. The place is waterfront and it is very relaxing; during warm days, the fountains sprinkle water at different speeds.
