    Horsens Nightlife

    For the younger crowd the night life seems to start at midnight and go from there. The younger ones sleep early to start at midnight and it saves money to meet up with friends. Clean nice stylish cloths.

  • Burial mounds at Jelling

    Jelling Things to Do

    The historic site at Jelling (a World Heritage Site) consists of two large burial mounds with a small church between. The slightly smaller south mound is just visible in this picture behind the church. The famous runestones are outside the south porch of the church (not visible in this picture, but see the next tip and the Jelling page for pictures...

    This is an important historical site which is not mentioned in any of the tourist literature we have seen.

    The 800m bridge was constructed by the Danish King Harald Bluetooth in the 10th century to provide a crossing for the "Army Road" (the ancient North-South route through Jutland) over the marshy Vejle river valley. Although the bridge was not in use for very long, it remained the longest bridge ever built in Denmark for nearly a thousand years, until the construction of the Little Belt bridge in the 20th century.

    At the site, you can see the route of the bridge as a cleared strip of land across the river valley (this is clearly visible in the picture on our Ravning Page. Just to one side there is a reconstruction of a short portion of the bridge (see picture on the right) which shows how it was constructed. There is a small "museum" in the nearby former railway building, which has lots of information about the bridge, including one of the massive wooden piles which supported it (there is also one of these at the museum in Jelling).

    This is an excellent place to visit for anyone with a serious interest in the Vikings, or early Danish history.
