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.

We visited early when we left Aalborg. There is free access to a huge site of burial mounds and stone circles and ships. Good indicator boards in English tell you what you are seeing.

Lindholm Høje is a major Viking burial site and former settlement. The burial site contains 682 graves, and the museum has two great exhibitions about the Vikings and the antiquity around the Limfjord, with a lot of information. The burial site is free of charge. The museum was recently enlarged, and a new exhibition of pre-history in the area of the Limfjord opened.

If you are interested in vikings and their ancestors this is the place to visit. The buriel site is exceptional and the museum makes a good effort in making the historical framework.

If you like history it is a must - read the posters for each site - the outside part is free but the museum cost a Little bit.
I just like the place and whenever we have visitors from other parts of Denmark or from abroad we like to take them there - there is a great view of Limfjorden from there and it is quiet even though the traffic is quite close.

A significant resource for viking history in this area and in my opinion the #1 historical attraction in the area. Includes the remains of a hillside settlement and burial site (free, with a nice view of the fjord and city) plus an extensive museum (admission charge). A worthwhile excursion for both families and single travellers.
Two minuses (at the time of my visit in June 2012):
1 ) the museum has two wings; the new wing has exhibits with descriptions in both Danish and English, the old wing, only in Danish.
2) local public transportation (bus #2C) doesn't go all of the way to the museum; it's a pleasant 5-10 minute walk from the bus stop (depending on whether you take the shortcut through the viking settlement).
