Jens Bangs Stenhus

Hotels near Jens Bangs Stenhus, Aalborg, Denmark .

The Jens Bang Stenhus in Aalborg, Denmark remains the largest Renaissance mansion in northern Europe. With such a title, Jens Bang, a wealthy merchant, had plenty to brag about when he built the home in 1624.

The mansion sits some five stories high, evidence of Jens Bang's love for opulence. The structure is composed of brick with curved gables on its roof. The entire mansion is covered with sandstone decorations, highlighting the Dutch Renaissance influence.

A third grader's revenge may be by sticking out one's tongue in dismay. However, Jens Bang was not a third grader when he had carved sculptures attached to Stenhus of faces sticking their tongues out towards the city hall of Aalborg. Bangs, while the richest man in Aalborg, was never elected to town council, hence his revenge in the form of a third grader's joke.

The mansion still serves a purpose. It is home to one of the oldest pharmacies in Allborg. Jens Bang Stenhus is located on Nytorv next to the old Town Hall. Alborg houses a number of accommodations for visitors wanting to spend the night.
