Fodor's Expert Review Jens Bang Stenhus
The favorite local landmark is the magnificent 17th-century Jens Bang's Stone House, built in 1624 by the wealthiest merchant in town. It was rumored that because he was never made a town council member, the cantankerous Bang avenged himself by caricaturing his political enemies in gargoyles all over the building and adding his own face with its tongue sticking out in the direction of town hall. The five-story Renaissance building has been the home of Aalborg's oldest pharmacy for 350 years. Note that the Aalborg tourist office is directly across the street.
