Lindholm Hoeje Museum, Aalborg

Located on an old Viking burial site, Lindholm Hoeje Museum represents an authentic place to learn about Viking culture. As you stand on the site, 700 ancient graves stretch out before you. The stone tombstones are well preserved on this archaeological site, which dates back to 400-1,000 CE, and the wandering sheep add to the serene panoramic view. The attached museum offers you a look into traditional Viking houses and display artifacts that were found on excavation of the grounds. Visiting the grounds is free, but the museum charges an admission. Make Lindholm Hoeje Museum a part of your Aalborg vacation plans using our Aalborg vacation route planner.

    You could spend a day visiting Lindholm Hoje Museet. History, life and culture come together. Put time aside for a relaxing lunchbreak and afternoon tea/coffee all provided by the cook, better known as the 'food daddy'.
