Norwegian and SAS have flights from Copenhagen to Aalborg, while Norwegian also offers international direct flights from European cities. The airport is located north of the city. Take Bus no 2 or a taxi (approximately 170 DKK) to town. The bus is infrequent on weekends and evenings, and stops the service rather early (around 23:00). If you arrive very late, have little luggage and small budget, you can walk ~2km until the Lindholm train station (as of Nov 2012 the train connection between Lindholm and Aalborg is broken). It is also possible to walk by foot all the way from the Airport to the city, 6km, approximately 1 hour)
Bus or train to the center should be still available after midnight.
Aalborg Busterminal on John F Kennedy Plads (The John F Kennedy square, phone: 98 12 87 13) right by the station is a large regional hub for long distance, regional and local buses. Express buses (XBus) leaves several times per day towards Aarhus (via Hadsund), Løgstør, Holstebro, Viborg (via Silkeborg) and Esbjerg. In addition regional buses (locally known as rutebil) connects to nearly every city of some size in North Eastern Jutland.
In the center it easy to walk by foot. To go further, there is a good public bus system (18dkk for 1.5h if you pay cash, ~118dkk for 10 rides clip-card). The buses don't go at night, and taxis are very expensive. The best way is still to get around by bicycle, you can rent one close to tourist information office. There is also a city bike scheme where you may borrow a bicycle after giving a 20 DKK deposit (doesn't work during the winter time). For longer stays, a better option is buying one. Police has auctions once per month, you can ask about them in the police station (the auction is held in Danish, so it's better to come with someone who speaks this language).
