Guided walk in downtown Aalborg  (free of charge – registration necessary  via this link)

We will go for a walk in the centre of Aalborg, listening for the echo of youngsters from the 17th century onwards. We will meet on Gammeltorv, by the Town Hall where law and order were maintained, go to the Monastery of the Holy Ghost, a centre for social care and teaching; we will pass the Cathedral, cross Østerågade ('East River Street’) to where 'the other half' used to live, and we will hear about child labour and the miserable conditions of the past. Passing the site of the Franciscan Monastery, we will end our stroll by a house, whose former owner represented the very top of society: Jens Bang's House
