Friis Shoppingcenter is located at the heart of Aalborg’s most attractive pedestrian street with direct access from the high street, Nørregade, and Nytorv Square. The neighbourhood has undergone massive redevelopment over the past 10 years. There are many new homes, large modern office buildings, the waterfront and Karolinelundsparken, as well as many cultural offerings (including the venue Musikkens Hus, Nordkraft cultural centre and Utzon Center museum).
Parking has become more difficult in the city centre, but not at Friis Shopping Centre, where 850 parking spaces constitute one of the most attractive car parks in the city.
Friis Shoppingcenter has 3.2 million visitors annually and attracts young students and the more established, affluent customers who work or live in the city centre. The market area accounts for approximately 485.000 people, of whom 187.000 live locally.
Furthermore, the city of Aalborg and Friis Shoppingcenter are popular destinations for tourists from Denmark and abroad.
On Gabels Torv, a grand main entrance welcomes visitors to the centre. The centre features 18 specialist shops ranging from fashion, home, F&B concepts and personal care to a fitness centre. For fashion- and quality-conscious shoppers, the 9.000 m2 Magasin department store is well worth a visit.
