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 building makes a good backdrop for photo opportunities. This is something for the historically interested,... 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.

This is in my opinion, the most interesting and unique building in Aalborg. The history of the man who owned it is a very interesting tale. It is a true gem of Aalborg.

One of the charming buildings in the old town. A cafe is in part of the building - not much to see other than enjoy the external architecture

Build in 1624 by an unknown architect. Jens Bang was a succesful merchant, living of transporting salt for the King of Denmark, Christian IV. After his death in 1644, the building was transformed into a pharmacy. Nowadays there is a small museum, displaying things from the old pharmacy.

A visit to the 400 year old wine and beer cellar is a must whenever I am in Aalborg. Lately however the service has been poor and once we have had to leave before we got the chance to order

We passed this beautiful old building three times and visited the old apothecary's shop inside before we realized it was the building we were searching for.The front facade has many strange carvings and it is a pity that you are not able to go inside and see it as it was when the original owner lived there as it is...
