2. Aalborg Monastery
We visit one of Aalborg’s oldest and best-preserved buildings: The Monastery of the Holy Ghost. A little oasis, tucked away in the big city. This atmospheric building is the guardian of fascinating stories from the time when it was home to monks and nuns. We visit the monastery’s chapter room to look in awe at its chalk paintings, which date from the early 16-century. Following the Reformation, the monks’ quarters became the home of the Latin school for 300 years. Later, during the World War II, Denmark’s first resistance group, The Churchill Club, was founded here. Today, the monastery is a residential centre for senior citizens.
3. The Franciscan Friary in Algade
Descending 3 m. (10 ft) in an elevator we visit the underground remains of the Grey Friars’ Church and Monastery. We hear about their life, contact and relationship with the city’s residents at that time and why the king banished them just before the Reformation.
