Owner description: 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.

Lindholm Hoje was one of the highlights of our two week car trip around Jutland and Copenhagen. The museum covers prehistory through the Vikings, and is extremely well done. The exhibits are beautiful, informative, and all have English explanations as well as Danish. It's not too overwhelmingly large - we took our time, and were in the building about 1.5 hrs. There is a separate area inside explaining the cemetery which does not have English explanations, so we only spent about 20 minutes in there. Then out to the cemetery itself - which is amazing. This would be a good activity for kids as the museum is captivating and a good size, and then you get to roam outside through the graves. We really enjoyed this trip.

Both the outdoor and indoor museum were absolutely fascinating - a lot to do with my local guide (a professional in viking history). In case you are interested in history and past, this place is suitable for you :) I give two thumbs up to the beautiful area, well put together museum and fascinating graveyard. A lovely little museum shop deserves an extra plus.

We were staying in Alborg one night and decided to check out the Viking Burial site. We were pleasantly surprised at this hidden treasure. They have a fantastic musuem. I loved the decorator and lots of Viking treasures and murals that depict the day in the life of a Viking. Most of the Museum is underground. They handed us folders with the items written in English so we could read everything and asked if we had any suggestions as we speak English. the burial ground was facinating to walk through too. this was to be a quick stop but we spent 2 hours and everyone enjoyed it. None of my American travel books said anything anout the bruial ground and museum.... sad
