The Lighthouse has become rather popular amongst the locals as well as tourists, as it gives you a nice and economic alternative to unhealthy junk food. 

Aalborg Street Food has been created to welcome everyone and anyone, holding space for 540 people, with spacious eating areas, a lounge area and a cosy atmosphere. During the warm weather the Lighthouse becomes a popular place due to its outdoor seating area, which is located right next to the harbour. Being able to sit outside, enjoy your favourite cuisine in the world and watch the sunset over the harbour, now what else could you ask for?!
