The place to be in Aalborg Jul 31, 2012
This is the place to be when visiting Aalborg!
There's always a bar open in Jomfru Ane Gade, any time of the week, but specially thursday-friday-saturday is the party going on!
In the daytime, there are about 5 resturants opening, and a few pubs/bars.
There are all kinds of themes:
- Sprutten is a sailor bar.
- "Heidis' bier bar" + "Das Bier Bar" + "zwei Grose Bier Bar" is as you may already know German Bier Bars.
- No. 16 is a more high class club.
- "Andys" and "Saltlageret" often has live music.
- and there is alot more to check out!
If you want to meet new people and have a good time, stop by Jomfru Ane Gade in the weekend time! the party is peaking at 23-04, but most places is open until 06.
Tip: Come early, and the prices are alot lower. There's bars having a 10 kr offer before midnight.

Crazy Street Feb 18, 2011
Yesterday I had the pleasure of being in Aalborg in northern Jylland; I stayed at the Radisson hotel which is situated next to the in Denmark famous Jomfru Ane Gade.
The street is possibly Denmark's most famous street; it is any way known all over Denmark. It is popular with both locals and tourists for its lively atmosphere with all the restaurants and pubs on both sides of the street. During Friday and Saturday night the street is packed all year around with all kind of people out partying.
It is said to be the street with the longest continuous stretch of restaurants and bars in Denmark, but having been in many parts of the world the street is only impressing in a country of Danish size. The street is particularly busy on warm summer evenings. First the terraces and restaurants fill up and then, as night falls, crowds of younger people walk up and down until they finally end up in one of the many discothèques, each famous for its own type of music.
The street dates back at least until the end of the 16th century, apparently named after Ane Viffert who in 1568 lived in nearby Skavegade. She is said to have been a nun at Ø Kloster on Limfjorden.
For the next 200 years, the street housed the homes of several merchants. Some of their half-timbered houses can still be seen. The first restaurant, the Gaslight, was opened in May 1967. As a result of its success, the Fyrtøjet opened the following year. By the end of the 1970s, there were a further 10 pubs and restaurants and by 1992, there were 26 and I guess that the number is the same today because the street in not longer than that.
