“Lindholm Hoje”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

On a business trip to Aarlborg and had a few hours spare.

A short 20min bus ride (2C) from outside Burger King took me to Lindholm Hoje for the price of a 20 krona return fare. Spotting the small wooden stile and brown sign pointing the way, a short walk through a small wood led me to a hilly area covered in stones marking lots of viking burial sites.
What a totally extraordinary and amazing sight!

Plenty of signs in English to explain what you are seeing around the site and the I spotted a small path on the far side which led me straight to the museum. 50K entry fee but absolutely masses to see and read about (English printed guidebook loaned so you can follow the section of the museum without english translations).

An amble back to the bus-stop (and a cold wait as I'd just missed a bus! - currently twice an hour 27 and 57...) and I arrived safely back into Aarlborg with time to spare for a trip to Penny Lane for a well deserved and delicious lunch.

“Go early morning for atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

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.

“Great museum and burial site”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

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.

“Ancient history”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

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.
