Kennedys Plads has connected the city to Randers and the south since 1869.The population grew in parallel with the development of many fine buildings in the city as merchants benefitted from their shipping routes from Norway to Portugal.During the second half of the 18th century, Aalborg entered a further period of prosperity.Budolfi Church, now a cathedral, dates from the end of the 14th century and Aalborghus Castle, a royal residence, was built in 1550.Today, Aalborg is a city in transition from a working-class industrial area to a knowledge-based community.
It was originally settled as a trading post because of its position on the Limfjord.
The area around the narrowest point on the Limfjord attracted settlements as far back as the Iron Age leading to a thriving Viking community until around the year 1000 in what has now become Aalborg.
In the Middle Ages, royal trading privileges, a natural harbour and a thriving herring fishing industry contributed to the town's growth.
The major university is the University of Aalborg, founded in 1974, which has more than 20,000 students (as of 2016).
The University College of Northern Denmark is one of seven new regional organisations while the Royal School of Library and Information Science (RSLIS) provides higher education in library and information science.
