The paper was established by a group of priests in Aalborg in 1767.[1][2] It was part of the Stiftstidende dailies.[3] The other two Stiftstidende newspapers were published in Odense, Fyens Stiftstidende, which was founded in 1772, and in Aarhus, namely Århus Stiftstidende, which was started in 1794.[3]

The paper was published by Aalborg Stiftstidende A/S.[4] Aalborg Stiftstidende had no political affiliation.[3][5] However, the paper was close to the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and was a member of the Chamber.[6]

By November 1996 Aalborg Stiftstidende started its website.[7]
