Jelling Monuments

Go on a driving holiday in Denmark and discover the exciting history hidden all around the country. Find a cheap holiday at Risskov and take the whole family to Jelling, where you can visit the impressive Viking Age monument site. The Jelling monuments consist of two rune stones, two very large mounds, Europe's largest stone settlement and the marking of a 1.4 km long palisade fence that surrounds the entire area. Right in the middle of the monument is Jelling Church, a Romanesque stone church from 1100, where Gorm the Old was reburied in 2000. The small rune stone was erected by Gorm the Old and is the oldest testimony to the name of Denmark. For the same reason, the stone is called Denmark's name certificate. The large rune stone was erected by Harald Bluetooth and marks the transition from paganism to Christianity and is therefore also known as Denmark's baptismal certificate.

The monument is considered to be Europe's finest Viking monument and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994.

Bluetooth technology, used for wireless communication in mobile phones and computers, is named after the Danish king, Harald Bluetooth, because of his ability to communicate between different factions. You can learn much more about the monument and the Viking Age at the Jelling Royal Experience Centre. It's free to visit both the monument area and the visitor centre, so with a cheap hotel stay from Risskov for the trip, you're set for a great day of Danish history! Find the perfect self-drive holiday with Risskov and learn more about our ancestors and cultural heritage in Jelling.
