Historic architecture in North Jutland

Photo: Mette Johnsen

North Jutland offers classical and modern architecture. Visit the yellow houses of Skagen, the cozy cobbled stone streets, and half-timbered houses of Sæby and Mariager Fjord on the east coast. Or discover the one-of-a-kind seaweed roofs of Læsø.

The east coast

North Jutland offers everything from classic to modern building styles. Experience Skagen's yellow houses, the cozy cobbled streets with half-timbered houses in Sæby on the east coast and Mariager by Mariager Fjord or the very special seaweed roofs on Læsø.

The west coast

Further west, during the summer, you can experience the white bathing huts on the beach between Blokhus and Løkken. In contrast, you will find the simple and robust fishing houses at Stenbjerg Landingsplads in Thy.

In Aalborg

The capital of North Jutland, Aalborg, contains several historic districts and many stories from both the Romantic period, industrialization to the present day, where world-famous architecture stands side by side with historic buildings on the Aalborg Waterfront.
