The Jelling Monuments

Jelling is home to Europe’s finest Viking-Age monuments: Denmark’s two largest grave mounds and two runic stones erected by the kings Gorm the Old and Harald Bluetooth in the eighth century. In 1994, the royal monuments and Jelling Church came under the patronage of the UNESCO World Heritage List. The 10-meter northern mound, presumed to have been built by King Harald Bluetooth, contained a wooden burial chamber in which the king’s father, Gorm the Old, had been entombed. The 70-meter southern mound is not actually believed to have been a burial site. The church sits between the two mounds and has an underground burial chamber. The smaller of the two large rune stones in front of the church was erected around 940-50 AD by Gorm the Old in honour of his queen, Thyra. The runic inscription reads: “Gorm the Old made this monument in honour of his wife, Thyra, the flower of Denmark”. This is the oldest known reference to the name of the nation. The inscription on the larger of the two rune stones, erected by Harald Bluetooth, reads: “King Harald made this monument in honour of Gorm, his father, and Thyra, his mother. Harald who won Denmark – in entirety – and Norway and who brought Christianity to the Danes.” The two rune stones, together with the church and the two grave mounds, are evidence of the transition from paganism to Christianity in Denmark and the change from Norse burial traditions to those of Christian religious practice. The Royal Jelling visitor’s centre relates the inspiring story of the royal monuments, their origin and significance.

Karensminde Agricultural Museum

A visit at Karensminde Agricultural Museum feels like stepping into another age. Here work is done as in the heydays of the farm back in the 18th and 19th centuries. The whole family can lend a helping hand when it is time to harvest, dig up potatoes or help milk the cow. In the meantime food is being prepared on the old woodstove. At Karensminde you can get very close to the animals. Help shear the sheep or collect the eggs in the chicken run. Have a look around the stables. On the green meadow you can say hello to the goat and geese. The rabbits are lying comfortably in their cages, while the cat sneaks a nap in a hay stack. When the big horses are harnessed to the wagon you can have a drive around the countryside in the old horse-drawn carriage. All year there are activities for the whole family on Karensminde. Enjoy making wooden toys in the wood workshop, make patterns on fabric with carved potatoes, paint eggs or lend a helping hand in the kitchen when soup or marmalade is made. You are welcome to bring a picnic basket and have lunch in the beautiful surroundings or buy a cup of coffee and a piece of cake in the small shop.
