About Kongernes Jelling
Harald Bluetooth describes himself as “that Harald who won all of Denmark and Norway and made the Danes Christian”. He did this on the largest rune stone in the world - a 10-tonne stone. Or about the same weight as a large male and female elephant. Combined.

Jelling is home to “Denmark's birth certificate”. This is where the country got its name. This is where the first king made his appearance. And it is here that we replaced Odin, Thor, Freyja, giants and wolves with Christ. The old gods weren't immediately forgotten. But the new kingdom brought immense change to the country.

Harald the Warrior King
Harald was a king with great power, which he liked to boast about. That includes the large monument square you can see in Jelling. It was once surrounded by a mighty palisade of heavy oak planks and is the largest building known from the Viking Age. The site is also home to the world's largest stone ship. Here Harald received distinguished guests and displayed his enormous strength.

Can you run around the monument square?
The white stone posts mark where the palisade was erected more than 1,000 years ago. It's 1,440 metres all the way around. That area could accommodate 20 football pitches. Now the area includes two giant mounds, two large rune stones, the remains of the huge stone ship and a Christian church. And the entire area is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Visit the exhibition at the museum and learn more about the Viking kings Gorm and Harald and what daily life was like for the Vikings. The award-winning exhibition has free admission and offers a unique experience for children and adults alike.
