Finding your way around Aalborg is really easy, since there are so many means of transportation that you can use.

1. Buses

Buses will take you almost anywhere in Aalborg and in Northern Jutland. The buses are extremely punctual and they follow the timetables that can be found on each bus stop. Timetables are changed twice a year. There is a summer and a winter timetable, due to the school year and reduction of buses during the school breaks. In the city center there is the main bus terminal located at the John F. Kennedy square and nearly all buses go from there to other parts of Aalborg and Denmark. You can either buy a bus pass or a monthly pass, and you can also buy a ten-fare punch card.

You put DKK 20 in the slot in order to unlock the bicycle, you can keep it for an entire day as long as you like, and you get your DKK 20 once you return the bicycle to any one of the bicycle stations.
