A very late review have used the earliest date that trip advisor would allow. But it was longer ago than that. We visited about 5 years ago in May. It was very quiet, only us and a couple of school parties. As English visitors we were made to feel extremely welcome. Lauren? the curator?/Education advisor? at the time came to find us and gave us a fabulous tour of the site. It is a visit we remember with extreme pleasure and would not hesitate to recommend Lejre to anyone. Everyone we spoke to was friendly, enthusiastic and knowleagable. I doubt that this has changed and we will hopefully return this year.

I always loved this place and visit almost every year just to get that feeling of prehistory. The iron age village is the best part, but I also enjoy their special activities like learning how to battle like a Viking.

Great autentic stone age village! Real people live here in the summer, as a kind of experiment. Its like taking a time machine back in time. A must see when you come top Copenhagen.

its like 30 min by train outside of Copenhagen,

We like to come often. The admission is transformed to a one year pass for no extra charge if you ask - so you can come twice in a holiday if you like it.
The little one cherishes the animals and I talk to the friendly and very informative staff about pre-history and archeological evidence.

in the summertime, Lejre is filled with middleagepeople, making food, slaugthering hens, baking bread - you will participate.
Make something in clay maybe. A small place - but a good spent day in the open. Your children will both chilled, scared and well informed when you leave the green hills.
