    Kongehøjen at Voldstedlund

    10.66 km

    ”Kongehøjen” is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved Stone Age graves we have in Denmark, which makes it worthy of its name.

    Excavations in 1961, and the following restoration of the long dolmens, showed it was built in the middle of the New Stone Age, approx. 3.200 B.C. So it was erected long before Denmark became a real kingdom, which was during the Viking Period. The most interesting aspect of the long dolmen, is the almost undamaged stone chain (1) with a total of 62 stones along the foot of the mound, as well as the two very well-preserved tombs, which is hidden in the mound. A reason for the unique condition of the dolmen could be that it was listed already in 1892, and perhaps also because the stories say that it would bode ill for those who broke the stone chain or disturbed the area in any way,

    Fyrkat Ringborg UNESCO Herritage

    11.24 km

    Fyrkat Ringborg has been acknowledged on the World Heritage List, alongside Denmark's 4 other ring forts, including Aggersborg, which also lies in Himmerland.

    Fyrkat Ringborg is a part of the Fyrkat Viking Museum, belonging to the North Jutland Museums.

    Fyrkat Ringborg, an impressive Viking fortress situated in the beautiful landscape of Himmerland, has now been included in UNESCO's World Heritage List. This historical stronghold, dating back to the Viking Age when Harald Bluetooth reigned, represents a significant part of Denmark's cultural heritage and tells a captivating tale of past societies.

    Fyrkat Ringborg was constructed in the 10th century and is renowned for its impressive architecture and strategic location. The circular shape of the fort and well-preserved earthworks testify to skilled construction and engineering prowess, characteristic of the Viking era.

    On UNESCO's World Heritage List, Fyrkat Ringborg is acknowledged for its significance as a hub for the political and social life of Viking society. It served as a powerful royal fort and a place where decisions of consequence for the society were made.

    UNESCO's recognition not only highlights Denmark's history but also focuses on the global significance of the Viking Age. It is an honour and a pleasure to see Fyrkat Ringborg included in UNESCO's World Heritage List, where it can inspire and educate future generations about our shared historical legacy.

    Visitors today can experience the Fyrkat Ring Fortress and explore the remnants of the past, and further down Fyrkat Road at the Chieftain's Farm, you can see history come to life when from May to September and during the autumn break it's filled with Vikings demonstrating Viking life, crafts, combat, and much more.

    The broadly laid out paths in Gudenå Park are perfect for long walks, runs, and bike rides.
