Trelleborg

Harald I constructed Denmark’s best-preserved Viking fortification in the 10th century (commonly known as Bluetooth). An estimated 1,000 warriors were stationed there at the peak of its might. The longhouse is the most spectacular of the rebuilt structures. It is fitted with seats that the Vikings slept on and is constructed from rough oak beams.

The main area of the castle once had 16 structures. A little cemetery outside included 150 burials, according to archaeologists.

Visitors have a wide range of activities to choose from throughout the summer. Staff members who are costumed as Vikings are on hand to show off everyday tasks like sharpening equipment and grinding maize. Children get the chance to practice archery in daily classes and even dress up like Vikings.

The museum displays intriguing artifacts discovered on the property, including jewelry and ceramics.
