Hot summer days and long, mild evenings are ideal for open-air concerts of various kinds. Each year Aalborg hosts several major rock concerts in Mølle Park, with up to 16,000 attending. There are also rock concerts in Skovdalen, behind Nordjyllands Kunstmuseum, all through the summer. Kilden Park is also a setting for summer concerts. Information about these summer concerts becomes available at the tourist office beginning in April.

The home of the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra is Aalborg Kongres og Kultur Center, Europa Plads 4 (tel. 99-35-55-55; bus: 15), north of Kilden Park. Opera and ballet performances are also presented here. The tourist office keeps complete data on all cultural events staged here.

Dance Clubs

Young people gravitate to Musik Keller, in the basement of the previously recommended restaurant Provence, Ved Stranden 11 (tel. 98-13-51-33). Neither the wildest nor the most conservative club in town, it's a bit staid by New York standards, although its DJ plays the most recent music arriving from London, Los Angeles, and elsewhere. There's never any live music, however. Admission is free, and the Keller is open Friday and Saturday 9:30pm to 6am.

Rendez-Vous, Jomfru Anegade 5 (tel. 98-16-88-80), offers drinking facilities on its street level, and a dance floor upstairs, attracting university students and folks under 40. Or head for Cube, Jomfru Anegade 10 (tel. 98-10-33-10), a bar and dance club that's open every Friday and Saturday 11pm to 6am.
