2. Kongernes Jelling – Home of The Vikings
Part of the Danish National Museum, Kongernes Jelling is a free attraction that preserves a UNESCO-listed 10th-centrury Viking monument created by King Harald Bluetooth.
Here, carved into huge runestones, Harald describes how he conquered Denmark and Norway, and brought Christianity to the region.
It marks Scandinavia’s transition from Pagan faiths to monotheism.
There’s a depiction of Christ on one of the run stones that even appears on all Danish passports, which gives you an idea of what the site means to this country.
