An impressive 700-sq-metre design and architecture space, the Utzon Center, with its distinctive silver roofscape, sits pretty on the waterfront. It bills itself as ‘a dynamic and experimental centre of culture and knowledge’ and is the last building designed by celebrated Danish architect, Jørn Utzon (1918–2008). Utzon famously designed the Sydney Opera House; he grew up in Aalborg and died shortly after the eponymous centre was finished.

The centre hosts a changing program of exhibitions on architecture, design and art; there’s also a high-quality restaurant.
