The mounds are accompanied by an information center, which is free to enter. 95% the information there are available in both Danish and English. You feel the history of the Vikings with your eyes, ears, even fingers. The introduction to the Danish Royal family chronicle...More

A very special place in Denmark. There is history from the Vikings and the royal chain of monarchy and the story of when the Danes became Christian. All shown in a superb way, good exhibitions and explanations.

The runic stones are well displayed, very interesting visit, the church is worth to get in. The view on the top of mounds is nice.

This UNESCO World Heritage site is definitely worth a visit. Near to Billund and the ‘Lego’ experiences. Good to do some research first (lots of info in the excellent visitors centre). The mounds create a huge ‘ship’ shape including the church. Very close to the...More
