Strike a pose: Aalborg’s photogenic cherry blossoms are blooming

by Megan McPhee Christensen

In Copenhagen, Bispebjerg Cemetery is one of the most popular spring destinations when the rows lined by Japanese cherry blossoms begin to bloom.

In fact, over 10,000 people drop by to see these glorious blossoms throughout the three to four weeks where they flower – and that attraction is already over for this year.

Here in Aalborg, many of us get a little envious when we see Instagram filled with pictures of the beautiful pink flowers that seem to enhance almost any outfit… but you actually need not take the trip to Bispebjerg in Copenhagen to get the perfect Instashot.

Just a short walk from Aalborg

In Nørresundby Cemetery, just a few kilometers from Aalborg’s city center, we have a cherry blossom alley all of our own. And it’s just started to bloom.

Nørresundby Cemetery is located at Kapelvej 2, which is around 1 km away when standing on the Aalborg side of Kulturbroen. You just need to cross the bridge, then it’s not far from there at all.

Due to corona and the restrictions on group gatherings, we strongly encourage you to remember to socially distance and avoid visiting in larger groups.

And of course, as it is a cemetery, you should always be respectful and courteous when visiting.
