Lindholm Høje

A few kilometres north of Aalborg, atmospheric Lindholm Høje (Lindholm Hills; free) is Scandinavia’s largest Viking burial site with more than seven hundred graves. It’s best to visit early or late in the day as the slanting sunlight glints off the burial stones, many of which are set in the outline of a Viking ship. It’s worth stopping by the site’s impressive museum.
