Alsborg Architecture

Sunny Aalsborg, Denmark could not be much windier. But compared to Norway, the weather is sunny and cheerful, as are the people. 
Citizens are allowed to have collective garden plots, where they can grow vegetables, flowers and herbs. The summer homes are off limits November through March. The construction is poor quality and the facilities are bare bones. Yet the garden plots are incredibly popular. 
Whereas Norway has a stunning topography of mountains and fjords, Denmark is flat and more reminiscent of Holland. The views cannot compare to Norway and its hundreds of waterfalls. 
Surprisingly, Denmark has so many inlets plus 400 islands, and thu
s shares the same amount of coastline as Australia.
