Definitely worth visiting the mounds, church and runic stones. The birth place of danish history and Christianity. A lovely view from the mounds of the surrounding fields and the pillars showing the boundary of the "village".

The mounds and runic stones, the old church, the wonderful museum are all within easy strolling distance of one another. This makes it an essential stop when touring this part of Denmark. We made it a destination stop on our itinerary.
