This whistle-stop tour of Aalborg ticks off all the city’s best bits. First up is Lindholm Hoje, a huge Viking burial site that sits to the north of the main town. More than 700 graves have been excavated since the Fifties, and it’s thought some of them date as far back as the 13th century. It’s a spectacular, if somewhat eerie, place and there’s a great little Viking Museum that’s worth a visit. It was given a makeover last year, and you’ll find a fascinating new exhibition revealing what the area was like in Viking times. Later, you’ll head into the city centre, passing by the Town Hall and the lively harbour. Last up on the agenda is the Nordjylland Art Museum. Dating back to 1972 it was designed by the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto and holds a large collection of modern Danish and international art from the 20th century.
