Overview

The burial site of Lindholm Hoje is one of the most beautiful ancient monuments in Denmark from late Iron Age and the Viking Age. Several hundred stone circles indicate the tombs. In the museum, you can see an exhibition on the lives of the Vikings on Lindholm Hoje as well as a new exhibition on the ancient time in the land of the Limfjorden.

An excellent well curated and presented display of the archeological history of this region. Lifelike presentations with English narratives. Pleasant helpful staff and nice cafe too. The graveyard is special, though bring a rain coat.

Excellent site and museum, very well displayed with lots of information, from more general to more detailed, with both reconstuctions and original finds. The site itself is very well taken care of, in an idyllic environment.

What is the best way to get to and from Lindholm Hoje when arriving in Aalborg by cruise ship? We would like to come independently and spend more time at this site than our cruise ship tour allows.
