Kildeparken or ”Kilden”, as the locals call it, is one of the oldest parks in Aalborg. In the beautiful park, several activities take place all year round.
In the park, classical pieces of work by famous sculptors can be seen alongside the impressive fountain which visitors in the park can admire while walking around in the scenic surroundings close to the centre of the city.
Events in the park
A very popular open air stage is located in Kildeparken. In the summer, several events of international standards take place, attracting visitors from all over the world. Among other events, Kildeparken hosts Aalborg Karneval, which takes place each year in May.
The Park of Music
In Kildeparken, you can also find the Park of Music. Here, famous artists have planted trees for Aalborg Culture and Congress Centre (AKKC) since 1987. Essentially this means that when an artist has played a concert at AKKC, they plant a tree. In front of these trees are speakers that you can activate by pressing a button, and a live recording from the artist's concert in Aalborg will start playing.
Activities for children
Besides the activities already mentioned, a modern playground for children is located in the park too. Each year, in connection with the carnival, a separate children’s carnival takes place in the park in May.
Whether you are into art, cosiness, carnivals, green areas or music, Kildeparken always has something to offer.
