There are no set prices for flights with RyanAir. You have to decide when you want to fly, if you check in online, if you have any checked luggage, if you want to buy insurance etc..
Look at the RyanAir webpage and try out the various possibilities, then decide.

A Viking Settlement

by lmkluque

The bridge to Aalborg spans the Limfjord at it's narrowest point and this fact plays an important role in the development of the city which can trace its roots back a thousand years from a coin documenting "Alabu" (The name given to Aalborg) and gives the date 1040.

Aalborg was an ancient Viking settlement and at Lindholm Hoje on the north side of the bridge, a burial place dates back to c. 400 and two settlements are dated at c. 700.

Visit Aalborg's impressive Viking museum to see important remains from Danish antiquity.

In the Middle Ages, as it is today, Aalborg was one of the largest cities in Denmark. It's location on the Limfjord facilitated extensive trade in such products as oxen, herring and grain and through the years, one result of this thriving trade business, was a significant impact on the city's architecture.

Still standing tribute to the rich history of Aalborg, built hundreds of years apart, "Saint Budolfi Church" built in 1440AD and "Jens Bang`s Stonehouse" built from 1623 to 1624 by the merchant Jens Bang, who seemed to be a pretty interesting character. (Take a look at the some of the faces on his building,) are just two of the many examples found here.

Brick and half-timber buildings can be seen throughout the city and the colors are fantastic. This photo of the "Old Town Hall" by Stenders Farlag shows the use of color popular in Aalborg.

Viking Graveyard at Lindholm Høje

by deptlads

If you are visiting Aalborg, it is worth visiting the fantastic viking graveyard at Lindholm Høje on the north of the Limfjord. In this field overlooking the city there are over 700 iron age and viking age graves marked by stones and mounds.

See our Lindholm Høje page and "must see" tips for more information.

Lindholm Hills Viking Cemetary (Lindholm Høje)

by Peter_DK

Lindholm Hills (Lindholm Høje) is a vast wiking cemetary from the late Iron Age and the Wiking Era, situated on a sloping hill on the North bank of the Liimfiord just opposite Aalborg. The fiord is at its narrowest just here and thus the obvious choice for the connection between Vendsyssel to the North and mainland Jutland.
The hill climbs to 42 meters above the fiord.
On the hill, several hundred stone dwellings are to be found and more than 700 graves have been uncovered, primarily with burnmarks as if the departed had been burned on funeral pyres.
The oldest graves date back to the year 500 AD while the youngest were made as late as the year 1100. Furthermore, the remains of a settlement or village have been found in the area. Even the remains of a new-ploughed field were found which must have been ploughed shortly before the sand covered it.
Towards the end of the 11th Century, the whole area was covered by sand. This has played a significant role in preserving the remains and the artifacts till present days.

The ancient cemetary on Lindholm Hills is undisputably one of the most spectacular and beautiful reminders of ancient times in the whole of Denmark. From the top of the hill, on clear days, there is a marvellous view of Aalborg and the fiord which stretches through the landscape for miles and miles. A true “must” for any visit to Aalborg.

The cemetary was discovered in the 1930ies, and completely escavated 1952-58

Next to the hill, an interesting museum is found, displaying in an untraditional way the artifacts from the escavations, as well as reconstructions, panoramas, maps and illustrations of the life and death of the wikings and their ancestors.

There is an OK, mid-priced café in the museum were you can have a cup of coffee or a meal while digesting the impressions from the visit. It is an excellent place to bring children as well.
