  • If you are into Vikings this is a must in my opinion. Nice little museum and a change for a good walk outside for the fortress. Make this part of a tour of this area of Denmark. There is even a recons...  read more »
  • The best: the visit which is Trelleborg on normal days for free! The Museum is made interesting and very informative. Also the exterior is interesting, even if there is not so much to see. A visit is worthwhile in any case!

  • OK, the site doesn't really have anything to do with the present day Bluetooth but there is a link. The Viking rune for King Bluetooth is the same as the current day symbol - a Danish invention with r...  read more »
  • Entrance was free. There is annual viking days here, make sure you plan your visit well. The whole fort location was littered with faeces though, probably from sheeps in the area.
  • A brilliant place to visit for Danes and tourists with an interest in viking history. Even though they call it a castle which can be misleading, then know that it is named after the castle that was there in the olden days. A fantastic historical place for the whole family as long as you dress for it.
  • Well worth a hour or more, depending on your interest in Danish history and archeological research on the Viking period. Make sure that you dress for the weather, bring a compass or GPS device, and your camera. Describing this as a castle is misleading; you will find ramparts, evidence of structures, and a full sized model of a long house, but definitely nothing resembling a castle.
  • For those interested in Viking/Danish history, this place must be on your list! Apart from the actual ring fortress itself you can see a Viking village, a reconstructed iron age log house, and in the museum artefacts recovered during excavation of the fortress. The fortress is from the 10th century and presumably built during Harald Bluetooth's reign. Good museum shop and friendly staff.
  • We went to Museet v/Trelleborg og Vikingeborgen Trelleborg last summer during our holiday to Denmark. The Borg alone is already worth a visit, but the replica buildings are also very nice to see. We went here at the end of the holiday season, so there weren't many activities going on that day. The staff was really helpful and took the time to answer our questions. There's a small playground for the children, and they'll like the viking village also.
