“Viking Burial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I really enjoyed walking around this area. The signs are in English, Swedish and German. It is a bit outside the city, but the busses are really easy to use. It was fun to walk around, and almost step back in time. The cafe is also lovely, with great service. There is a biking path that goes from the city, and is about 6 km. Bring a lunch, and picnic by ancient stones!

“Anundshog Viking Burial Ground”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a fascinating area of Sweden. It is an old viking burial ground, with a viking burial mound, viking ships made of huge bolders to carry the vikings to Valhalla (heaven) and a large rune stone. Also close by is an ancient labrynth.

“Must See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

This historical site really suprised me. First of all it is free of charge and exceptionally easy to get to. There are a number of informative signs to guide you through and also a little cafe to have a snack. You must walk to the top of the large burial mound, that is when it become truly impressive!

“Love this place/ best of Vasteras”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

The highest burial mound in Sweden. This place is amazing. If it were in England it would be crowded with tourist. Just a few years ago they built a cafe and now when it rains, you have some shelter. The runic stone is amazing. The British have done some recent tests here. This history goes back 1000 years but locals know very little of it. Up until the 1400's the "Alting" was held at the top and was then transfered to the town castle. Midsummer one can see the traditional summer festival. Only the cafe has a charge and there are swings for the children.

“Worth the Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

A must see if you are coming to Sweden. A burial mound for Vikings that can be reached easily by bus. One bus takes you there and the same bus can pick you up. The site is free to visit and has many signs in English and Swedish. The site lies just outside the city and is full of history.
