Lindholm Hoeje Museum, Aalborg

4.4
#1 of 10 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.

  • 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'.
  • Small, but interesting. Both English and Danish information available. The viking burial grounds outside the museum are also with a visit.
  • The museum staff was friendly. I enjoyed learning about the history of the area. Outside was a clear path to the ancient grave and village sites.
  • A nice museum with a thrilling exhibition. I'm sure it's impossible to miss but just in case, don't miss the beautiful graveyard nearby the museum.
  • Really nice museum, but the best part is the "graveyard" which you can visit at any time and it has this peaceful affect.
