Excerpt: Aalborg (or Alborg) (Danish pronunciation: ) is a Danish
industrial and university city in North Jutland. The city of
Aalborg has a population of 102,312 (124,921 including Norresundby)
making it the fourth largest city in Denmark in terms of
population. The municipality of Aalborg has a population of 197,426
(2010) making it the third most populous municipality in the
country after Copenhagen and Arhus. The earliest settlements date
back to around AD 700. Its location by the Limfjord made it an
important harbour during the Middle Ages, and an industrial centre
later. Today, the city is in transition from a working-class
industrial city to a knowledge-based one. Lindholm Hoje,
2008Aalborg traces its history back over 1000 years. It was
originally settled as a trading post, because of its position on
the Limfjord. The sites of what were two settlements and a visible
burial ground can be seen on Lindholm Hoje, a hill overlooking the
city. The size of these settlements emphasise the significance of
this place as a crossroads. The first mention of Aalborg under its
original name Alabu, is found on a coin dated to 1040. An
alternative spelling is Alebu and an approximate translation of the
name is The (dwelling) place by the stream. Aalborg panelled room,
