In the tenth century, King Harald Bluetooth had Denmark`s name engraved on a runestone in Jelling and erected two barrows and a church. The Jelling Monuments have enjoyed UNESCO World Heritage patronage since 1994. In the visitor and experience center, Kongernes Jelling, you can discover the exciting world of the Vikings and their monuments. After the discovery and study of a mighty, diamond-shaped palisade in the years 2006-13, the entire area around the barrows was changed and surrounded by hundreds of newly erected white concrete pillars that encircle the entire site, marking the approximate location of the original wooden stockade.
You can visit Jelling Monuments from Vejle.
