First-time visitors usually get quite a surprise when they enter the cobbled courtyard of Lange Kunsthåndværk (Lange Handicrafts), a ceramic workshop and gallery housed in an old farm from the 1700s. Although it is just a short stroll from one of Aalborg’s vibrant shopping districts, the courtyard is a peaceful spot where the noise of the city is barely audible. After a visit to the gallery, many visitors end up seating themselves in the garden, which is decorated with artwork by the Lange artisans and is a venue for popular weekly concerts throughout the summer.
