The Jelling Monuments Reviews & Ratings
If you're at all interested in history, this place is definitely worth a visit. Don't forget to save time for the exciting (free!) museum as well.
Don't miss the museum right across the church. The stones are worth a fast visit but the museum tells a lot of history in a very interactive way.
One of the most important historic places in Denmark. Don't miss out on the free museum across the road. Also take a walk around the scenery and see if all from different angels. The history of the stones are very interesting, and really should be studied prior to coming to get the real historic feel. A bunch of good options to get a bite to eat next to the place and in the museum as well. Fairly easy parking. Should not a be a problem off season.
Wonderful scenery and culturally rich area. Monument is magnificent and local museum a must visit.
Nice views! Intresting site.
