Accommodation in Aalborg


Looking forward to relocate in Aalborg? Find all that you need to know about its rental market in this article.

Aalborg is above all a historical and cultural city. Located in the Jutland region, it is a medium-sized city but remains rather popular with expatriates, especially for its historical sites, museums, as well as universities.

By moving to Aalborg, you will enjoy a more lively and dynamic environment compared to Aarhus, as well as a pleasant lifestyle and affordable accommodation.


Located on the river bank, Aalborg is surrounded by 66 meters high hills. Besides hilly areas, you will also find several rustic neighborhoods such as Gistrup.

Most accommodation is found in the East of the city center which is a developing area. Hasseris, for instance, has evolved into a residential neighborhood with many individual houses and villas.

Rent prices

Compared to other major Danish cities, rent prices in Aalborg are much more affordable. To rent a studio, for instance, you will need around DKK 3,000 in the outskirts and some DKK 4,000 in the city center. For an apartment, on the other hand, count an average of DKK 5,600 in the outskirts and some DKK 7,500 in the city center.

Find accommodation

Like in most Danish cities, word of mouth can be the best way of finding accommodation in Aalborg. So feel free to spread the word among your friends or contacts on the spot during your housing search. Moreover, some companies also provide temporary accommodation to their foreign employees until they find long term rentals.

You may also seek the assistance of a real estate agency for more chances of finding accommodation as per your criteria. Although Aalborg is less densely populated than other major cities, finding accommodation can be quite difficult due to its student population. You should probably avoid January and September when the demand is higher than usual. Real estate agencies are likely to put you on a long waiting list that can take up to six months.
