Lindholm Hoeje Museum, Aalborg

4.3
#1 of 15 in Museums in 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.

  • It's a nice place to visit if you're staying in Aalborg and gibes a great insight into the Viking Age in Aalborg. Many finds of the burial grounds (next to the museum, free to explore) are displayed t...  more »
  • Had actually been looking forward to getting homemade vol-au-vent, which from description, size and price, lay on what I would call ' classical Nordjydsk '. And it was also classic Nordjydsk, but it was cold, and far from the experience I was hoping for (probably because it was warm to cold). However, it was cheap, and there are now very cosy in the restaurant, especially bearing in mind that it is a museum. The operation seemed to be voluntary, and entirely at the top. Thanks for the food.

  • The museum was a good time. I especially liked that other languages were offered so I'd know what I was looking at. The BEST part was the Viking burial grounds!  more »

  • Nice museum. You can get a lot of info about the vikings. There are free guides in many languages at the entrance. Then there is a big museum that explains you the way of life of vikings and the story about the viking tombs and the cemetery. It is a nice place to learn and breathe the history.
  • The burial site was amazing. The place wasn't crowded and it was easy to park. It's very informative and interesting. If you like history, it's a good place to visit. Good coffee, btw.
  • I wasn't sure what to expect, but was thoroughly adsorbed by my education into the local history. The staff could not have been more helpful.
  • Loved the museum. The burial site is also amazing. Can really feel the history!
  • If you are interested in history must visit. Very informative and interesting. Also has a very good cafe.
