A very special place to visit. The place where Bluetooth has been buried! To visit this place you have to be a little Viking-crazy. However, do not just visit the site. Do enter the museum, because it will all make much more sense. Moreover, the museum is for free. The restaurant across the road is good for a beer.

Driving home to Copenhagen we naturally visited Jelling, having lived in Cph since 72, I knew about the stones and Gorm the Great but to see everything for the first time up close, visiting the 1000 year old church, climbing the burial mounds and entering the museum, WOW, impressive and a must see for everyone.

Very nice and modern museum with some delightful interactive stations making it interesting for people of all ages. Not too big so you can get through it in a reasonable time before walking over to the mound, the church and of course the famous stones

Very important part of Denmark and Scandinavian history. A lot of landmarks with very detailed explanations. Church is wonderful and small graveyard is (I have to say this for graveyard since I am from the environment that strives for megalomania in this field) very compelling. Day was very terribly cold and windy so we didn't explore as much as we would in normal conditions.

This museum uses tech to make otherwise boring exhibits interesting. The kids can push buttons and see the timelines move. There is a drawing of a fallen Viking with axes and spears sticking out of him - then you can grab ex. the axe handle and see how bad the injury was and whether he would die or not... fun!
In the foyer there is a super nice robotic drawing machine that does a new chalk drawing every day.
Entrance is free.
