Great stones, but there are only two of them. Nice scenery, nearby museum we didn't bother with. Cute small town with lots of quirky cafés. Two or three hours is probably enough for your trip to Jelling.

I've always wanted to see the Jelling stones, but I didn't realise there is such an excellent exhibition with it. This really is the best such exhibit I have ever seen. The interactive time lines are in Danish and English and very well planned and laid out. Favourite exhibit is the " guess how the warrior died" which has hilarious sound effects. Upstairs there is an excellent installation which goes through the Norse cosmology and on the roof top the viewing "telescopes" show you how the site looked through the ages. As this is such an important site to the Danish identity it is free, which is amazing. Extensive gift shop and nice cafe on site with several other eateries near by. Also a supermarket nearby if you just want to buy a picnic to eat at the many tables around the site (good for Brits suffering from post Brexit £ slump who can't afford to spend many DKK!!)

Seeing the historical rune stones that are the birth certificates of Denmark in their natural environment feels great. Marble stones delineating outer limits of burial site are intriguing.

After a visit to mounds cut short by torrential rain, Museum was such a delight. Interactive maps and drawings projected on the walls make you stay at each table (map) until you see all the options. So many things to touch and see. One of best small museums ever!

The site is very interesting, the museum has a very good display of information, the mounds are very well kept. Don't miss the view from the terrace of the museum
