Difficult to rate this place as it was fairly gloomy when we arrived. The museum is very interesting and has a lot of artefacts. The talk by the very enthusiastic owner was ok up to a point, but he did carry on a little bit to much. His wife and staff were lovely. Little snacks were interesting even though we... More

There are two distinct parts to Lindholm Høje. There is the archaeological site itself, which is free to enter and there is the museum, which you need to pay to see. There is also a gift shop and café at the museum. Access to the archaeological site from the car park is over the crest of a small hill, which... More

Easy bus ride from town and a walk up a steep hill. The viking burial site was fascinating as the stone circles were different shapes depending on whether a male or a female was buried in it. It had a very tranquil atmosphere and lovely views over the surrounding area. Loved the cafe where I had a hearty lunch and... More

Exceptional escorted day tour from the Viking Star cruise ship to this oldest known Viking cemetary; quiet, serene, contempletive setting. Fresh and green, warm and sunny with gentle breezes. Beautiful memorial stones arranged in ancient patterns. I was accompanied by my adult son who shared my deep sense of privilege as we walk about this lovely spiritual site of living... More

An excellent well curated and presented display of the archeological history of this region. Lifelike presentations with English narratives. Pleasant helpful staff and nice cafe too. The graveyard is special, though bring a rain coat.

Excellent site and museum, very well displayed with lots of information, from more general to more detailed, with both reconstuctions and original finds. The site itself is very well taken care of, in an idyllic environment.

We loved seeing the Viking cemetery and reading all the information on the høje itself. It's a beautiful area and very impressive with all the viking graves, one can really feel the history seeping up. The cemetery is free and one can then buy a ticket to the museum. The museum itself was not that great. A lot of the... More

We visited this site as part of a cruise tour on a one-day stop in Aalborg and found it fascinating. Admittedly we had a guide and it was part of a package visit but it was great. Firstly there is the guided visit to the site of the Viking village which is very interesting. Then there is a sampling of... More

In the short way from the Lindholm Hoje (cemitery) to the Lindholm Hoje Museum, you can take some beautiful shots of nature. It is worth to say that the museum is the only paid part of this visit.
