Lindholm Hoje was one of the highlights of our trip through Denmark. We spent close to 3 hours, casually wandering through the museum and lingering for a bit in the beautiful cemetery.
The museum was well laid out and full of fascinating information on Vikings, the discovery and excavation of the cemetery, and history of the area. There were many relics on display that were recovered in the area, and great descriptions and depictions of life in Viking times. All exhibits were presented in both Danish and English, so it was easy to make sense of everything without a guide.
The cemetery was amazing. Some of the oldest burial sites here are from the year 400 AD! It is so beautiful and tranquil; I can imagine being at peace resting there for all eternity. It was so interesting to see the different shapes of the stone structures and read about what each shape meant. The cemetery has signs scattered throughout giving different information about where homes were erected, where people were buried, what the stones mean, etc.
If you're in Aalborg, don't leave without stopping here.
