Famous as one of the seven known Viking ring castles, Trelleborg can be described as a fortress. Legend says that it was ordered to be made by King Harald Bluetooth in the year 980 AD for sea trading purposes. Reputed as one of the best preserved Viking fort, a museum was established in the year 1995, to tell the story of this era to all. Excavation took place at this site from 1934 to 1942, and a number of artefacts related to daily life, like keys, pottery, combs, scissors and more have been found. All such items are on display at the museum. As of today, this sight has applied to the UNESCO to be considered as a World Heritage Site.

Trelleborg - Museum Of The Viking Age Reviews & Ratings
I could have spent a couple of days here. It was fascinating. We learned so much and we only saw about 1/2 of it. I highly recommend it.
nice archaeological site with a little viking museum, including the possibility to dress up and have kids draw Celtic cross etc, lovely viking memorabilia shop and food!
Beautiful setting and friendly museum. Very interesting to see where the fortress would have been and small replica village.
It's an impressive structure. Vikings seems to have been systematic.
Great place. Fantastic Viking Summer Market
