Accommodation in Aalborg

Recommend

Aalborg is a historical and cultural city. Located on the Limfjord in North Jutland, it is Denmark’s fourth most populous city (ca. 113,000). It is popular with expats for its historical sites, museums, and theatres; and Aalborg University is a big draw for those looking to study in Denmark. Choosing Aalborg means selecting a pleasant and affordable lifestyle.

Neighbourhoods in Aalborg

Aalborg sits down on the Limfjord surrounded by hills and beautiful nature. There are many green areas and parks, a theatre district, a waterfront area, the university district, and more. Hasseris is an established and desirable housing area. New areas of housing have been planned in the developing area east of the city.

Rent prices

Compared to other major Danish cities, renting in Aalborg is quite reasonable. To rent a studio, for instance, you will need DKK 3,500 to DKK 4,500. For an apartment, on the other hand, count on DKK 6,000 to DKK 8,500. These price ranges cover areas both in and out of city centre. Utilities are not usually included in the monthly rent, and a deposit will be required as well.

Search for accommodation in Aalborg

As with other Danish cities, word of mouth can be the best way of finding accommodation in Aalborg. If you are already in or know someone in Denmark, spread the word about your housing search. Additionally, some companies may provide temporary housing until their foreign employees can find something more permanent.

Seeking the help of a real estate agent could also increase your chances of finding accommodations fitting your criteria. Although Aalborg is less densely populated than other major cities, finding accommodation can be quite difficult when students are about the start at university (September and February). Start your housing search early to avoid disappointment.

You should, of course, also look online. Numerous websites, forums, and Facebook groups dedicated to the topic can help you find your ideal accommodations.
