History[edit]

Aalbæk station in 1975.

The station opened in 1890 when the railway started. In 1915, the Danish Parliament agreed to build a new railway line between Aalbæk and Hjørring, but it was only the first part between Hjørring and Vellingshøj stations that was built. Instead, that railway was extended to Hirtshals and this is today the Hirtshalsbanen railway line.

The station building was built in 1932-33. It was the last drawn by the architect Ulrik Plesner before his death.
