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.

  • Definitely worth seeing, a small museum, which gives a very sober and thorough introduction to the life around the site protected on Lindholm Høje and not least the story of the site udgravelse and presents the various and diverse fund, on a nice and illustrative way. Perhaps most a place for real history fans and geeks, yet has been made with modern instruments also to make it interesting for children and laymen. A minus. Signs and powerful lighting rarely go hand in hand, not even here. It can be surprised that the staff cannot see that more of the info boards is unreadable due to. lighting conditions and location. But otherwise definitely an exciting museum which throws new light on the iron age and Viking age.
