  • It is worth taking a morning of relaxation and fun. The Museum is very entertaining and interactive, as well as free. Very interesting with the runes authentic Church. The best, for me, the representation of a Viking Village that make, with plenty of stalls and cabins, crafts, many people dressed to the Viking, mock fights, archery, chefs... Highly recommended.

  • Jelling stones and the cemetery was a nice sight, I broke my not to the Church was totally revamped. Standing on one of the burial mounds always gives a historical presence of history

  • The Church and the stones themselves are not a big deal, but to be honest I loved complex. Advice before entering into the Museum to better understand, since it's also free
