Wealthy trader Jens Bangs built this beautiful business and dwelling structure for his own use. He died without heirs. Today it is privately owned. This is clearly one of the most widely recognized buildings in all of Aalborg.

17th century stone house that ridicules local pols with silly caricatures in the form of gargoyles to seek revenge by this wealthy merchant for not being named to the city council. Now it's home to a 350 year old pharmacy.

Jens Bang's Stenhus is an old building in the heart of Aalborg, and it has quite some history to it. So it is well worth taking a guided tour in Aalborg, one that includes this old house. The architecture is quite interesting and distinguishable. The...More

This is probably the most interesting building in Aalborg. The story of the merchant who owned it and how it was used and positioned in the city are really interesting.
