Dramatized city walk
HORRIBLE AALBORG - Dramatized city walk in downtown Aalborg
Tuesday, 28 June from 18:00 – approx. 22:00 hrs
Drunkenness and brawls, prostitution and witch burnings were all part of life for the citizens of Aalborg some 400 years ago. The dark past lives again for you on this tour where historical facts are mixed with convincing drama!
The tour lasts a little over an hour where a guide leads the guests safely through the tumult, in which semi-professionel actors from the theatre group of Det Hem’lige Teater (the secret theatre) help recreate the past. They breathe life into some of the historic and infamous events that Aalborg has witnessed through the centuries.
You will learn about rich and the poor, centering on the wealthy merchant, Jens Bang, who built the famous stone house in 1624 that bears his name. The tour winds through the old city streets and looks at the life of such people – not to mention the prostitutes, the pregnant chambermaids and the liquor that was the poor man’s friend.
The tour ends in historic Duus Wine Cellar (in Jens Bang’s House) where typical Danish Open Sandwiches will be served together with a nicely chilled draught beer!
Price per person DKK 350 incl. food and beverages as described.
