Gamla Uppsala is an interesting place to visit to learn something about Vikings. There are Kings graves, big hills, a very old church, restaurant and a museum. It would be possible to make it really great by increasing the information. The entrance fee of 80...More

The signs around the mounds aren’t all that informative considering how fascinating the and important the sight seemed to be for the history of early Germanic Scandinavia. Nevertheless the mounds are fun to see and I may be partly to blame for not going to...More

Not worth it, four hills, an old church and an old building that apparently is some kind of Viking house.

Historical site with grave mounds from around 400-500 A.C. The museum on site is very interesting and will give you a good insight of the story around the site. A large temple was built at this site, probably where the old church is located. Nice...More

I didn’t realize the amount of Swedish history that would be here. We spent a couple of hours. The church was our favorite stop here. We also walk the grounds, went to the museum and the cafe.

We biked from Uppsala. The trip should be doable for most. There was a bike lane for almost the entire trip and was flat. Gamla Uppsala has a small but informative museum, a church, and the burial mounds. The restaurant was closed for renovation when...More

I really enjoyed this site. There is a lot of information that is easily gained by reading the placards and the multilingual staff seemed friendly. You could easily spend a half-day enjoying a leisurely walk around the mounds, visiting the museum and reading through the...More

We were staying in Uppsala for the weekend and Gamla Uppsala is a short drive (or walk if you are up to it) from the city. There had been a fresh fall of snow overnight, which was ideal for me because I was looking forward...More
