Vejle
Perched at the head of a fjord, Vejle sits in an idyllic intersection of rivers, valleys and forested hills. During the Middle Ages Vejle was an important market town. Today it enjoys more sophisticated status, thanks to spas, shopping centers, safari parks, golf courses and upscale dining establishments. Don’t miss the Viking-age rune stones or the remains of the Iron Age “bog woman” on display inside of St. Nicolai Church.

In 1994, the monuments were included on UNESCOs list of historical monuments that are particularly worthy of preservation, the World Heritage List (thus joining, for example, Stonehenge and the Great Wall of China). Two huge mounds and two large rune stones, with a whitewashed church midway between them - what links these impressive monuments from the past? The permanent exhibition centre, Royal Jelling, is closed but will reopen in the summer of 2015, including a roof terrace from which you can view the area with the two rune stones, the ship setting and palisade. The exhibition covers a number of the mysteries associated with Jelling. Was it King Gorm the Old that archaeologists found beneath the floor of Jelling Church? Was he really first buried in the northern mound in accordance with pagan custom? And why does the largest rune stone depict both the Midgard serpent and Christ on the cross? Who lies buried in the world's largest ship setting? The exhibition also shows how the finds at Jelling have expanded our knowledge of Denmark's Viking heritage and how the story of Thyra has become a saga of almost mythical proportions. Jelling con¬tains much of what can be regarded as Denmark's national identity. Admission to the exhibition is free, although there is a charge for guided tours on various themes. less
