The cellar of Jens Bang’s House houses Duus Vinkjælder – home to Christian IV’s Guild. The tale of this odd union begins in 1942, where Denmark was occupied by German troops. At this time, the wine cellar under Jens Bang’s House with its white arched ceiling became a popular venue for the troops to meet. It quickly became a nuisance for the local customers to have one of the few places, where you could still buy beer and nuns’ blood as this time’s Danish produced wine was called, occupied by the Germans.

A circle of ‘enlightened citizens’ along with the owner of the wine cellar formed a union where neither the foreign soldiers nor their allies were accepted. The union received the name Christian IV’s Guild in recognition of the monarch who ruled Denmark, when Jens Bang built his house.

Jens Bang's House has become a true Aalborg landmark and for over 300 years, the building has been home to Aalborg's oldest pharmacy.
