Read about the city of Aalborg
Aalborg Family Camping “STRANDPARKEN” lies 1.8 km. from the centre.
Right next to our Camping Site is the open-air swimming pool with free access – so remember your swim suits! There is a lovely sand beach, playground, beach volley and springboard on 5 and 10 m.
In close connection to the Camping Site there is a fine system of paths which some people call “fittness paths”. Via the paths you can choose to go down to Limfjorden with the beautiful view. From here the small ferry sails which in a few minutes take you to the small island Egholm with about 55 inhabitants. The island has a good restaurant called “Kronborg” which is famous for its fried eels. Do you want coffee and cake Kronborg provides that too. Sit on the terrace and listen: the sounds and life from Aalborg city travel across the water – distant yet so close. Egholm is a small oasis in the middle of a lively citylife. The ferry fare forth and back is only 16 kr. Children half price. Maps and information about Egholm is available in the reception.
