This is a very lovely historical site which I would highly recommend. We were very surprised how few people were there given its historical significance. It is very well presented with a lovely visitor's centre and lots of explanation in English and Danish. You can climb to the top of the burial mounds which gives a lovely view. The church... More

Once you've climbed up there are great views from the top. You must visit the museum next door, very well laid out

But we were close by so the kids and I went there an afternoon. Visited the museum which is a very good and interactive place, the kids enjoyed it. The surrounds the Stones/ ruins was fun to see and talk about. A big effort has been done to keep it nice and clean so it is a good experience.

You feel the depth of history in this place. Combined with the museum right next to the ancient monuments, it's easy to appreciate the events and people who shaped the early Danish nation.

Something to see and to do for all ages. Kids had fun rolling down the mound and dressing up as vikings in the museum and the adults had a fascinating history lesson. The museum, or experince centre as it is officially called, is very modern and has all kinds of interactive displays on viking history and folklore. You can even... More

Check out the Jelling Mounds, Runic stones in the churchyard and free Viking museum across the street. Once a year in summer months there is also a Viking festival.

My boyfriend and I stopped here after a day of exploring Aarhus and I'm so glad we did. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the signage does a great job of telling the site's history. The museum was closed when we arrived but there was plenty to see without it. I highly recommend this site for anyone interested in Danish... More
