Aalestrup - The city of bicycles
Aalestrup - the city of bicycles? Why not?
After all, you will find a lovely museum about bicycles - in fact, it is the only museum in the world, which is focusing on the technical development of bicycles over time. So, if you want to show your grandchildren how a penny-farthing looks like – maybe like the one that their great-grandfather once had? - then you must visit Aalestrup.
When you have seen the bicycles, you must visit Den Jydske Rosenpark - here you will find lots of good places for eating your lunch pack, and at the end of the park you will find Simested Å - so remember your fishing rod.
Welcome to the city of bicycles, Aalestrup. Here, you will be welcomed - whether you are arriving on your bicycle or not… ;)
