An old Church - built on top of a very ancient church. The grave of (perhaps) King Gorm was found and marked with an arrow in the floor. World heritage.

In all fairness this a lovely, beautiful little church in the middle of the experiences. However, if you compare it to the mounds or museum it has little to offer. Nonetheless, be sure to step in and check it out it is really nice.

Loved the sidetrip we took to Jelling on our way to Skagen. The church, surrounding grounds and cemetery, were very beautiful and it was worth the detour off the freeway.

Not so much to write about, but it is a nice little church in nice surroundings. The graveyard and the two hills next to the church are also nice for a walk around.

Reconstructed church and a burial site, part of the UNESCO WHS. The entrance is for free, you can buy a booklet about the church on site. Opened most of the time. Makes for a short visit when visiting the stones and the mound.

A nice small old church. Modernised and renovated. Between the two mounds. Worth a visit. Arrived one Sunday morning a loved the choir singing.

This classic town of Jelling with its important history is a must-stop place when in this part of Denmark. The church is older and small, but the excavations in and around it are fascinating. The nearby museum is very well designed and so interesting.

To be honest I don't really like what they have done to this old church. They have modernised the interior, probably for a very good reason, but nevertheless. It has become too much like an monument of Danish design.

This small church is part of the Jelling experience, it is between the two mounds and adjacent to the museum.
