    Engelsholm Castle

    12.92 km

    The History of Engelsholm Castle

    The Renaissance castle Engelsholm is beautifully situated on the shores of Engelsholm Lake, surrounded by forest and park. The castle was built by Knud Brahe - the brother of Tycho Brahe - in 1592. The very regular building is rectangular in plan with square towers featuring onion domes embedded in each corner.

    The inspiration was drawn from the castle Ancy-le-Franc in Burgundy, France. In the 1730s, Gerhard de Lichtenberg began an extensive restoration and remodeling of the castle. He added the distinctive onion domes, constructed a large three-winged farmyard, and laid out the park in the French style. The castle still contains furnishings with painted Chinese scenes from the renovation.

    Gerhard de Lichtenberg also left his mark on the nearby Nørup Church, which belonged to Engelsholm Castle from 1586 to 1935. The Romanesque church is richly decorated with Baroque-style furnishings and, like the castle, features onion-shaped domes.

    The castle burned down in 1952 but was immediately restored to its original form.

    The Recent History of Engelsholm Castle

    Since 1940, Engelsholm Castle has been operated as a folk high school and is today owned by the independent institution "Engelsholm Højskole." The castle is not open to the public, but it can be viewed from the outside from the southern part of the park. In addition to the other buildings, which regularly host public events such as classical concerts. Click on the link to read more - Engelsholm Castle events | Music & Culture.

    Surroundings of the Castle

    The castle is located in beautiful surroundings on the shores of Engelsholm Lake, surrounded by forest and park. The castle park was likely established by Knud Brahe in the years after it was built, thus as an herb and rose garden.

    In addition to the symmetrically laid out beds, lawns, and ponds, the park features clipped trees and bushes as well as terrain shifts in the form of embankments and staircases. The park is now 6 hectares in size. The main elements in Engelsholm's park are the terraces with clipped trees and the moat. The castle on an island in a moat at the edge of a larger lake is also something quite special for Engelsholm. The park is open to the public year-round.

    The Grave of the Egtved Girl

    15.39 km

    The Egtved Girl was discovered on Thursday, February 24, 1921. Farmer Peter Platz was removing the last remnants of a burial mound on his field when he came across a heavily carved oak trunk.

    The excavation was conducted by the National Museum, and thus the oak coffin was subsequently transported to Copenhagen. When opened, it revealed a cowhide bag at the top. Beneath it lay a woven blanket of brown wool, and beneath the blanket lay the deceased herself—a 160 cm tall young girl, her semi-long hair almost concealing her face, and a small bronze earring.

    The girl later became known as the Egtved Girl.

    Belt plate of bronze and cord skirt
    She lay on her back, her skin well-preserved, but no bones remained. She wore a brown wool blouse, and on each wrist was a bronze ring. Under the blouse, the iconic bronze belt plate could be discerned. A skirt made of twisted brown woolen cords was wrapped twice around her waist.

    At her left shin, there was a bundle of clothes containing the burnt bones of a 5-6-year-old child. At her feet stood a birch bark container with remnants of a kind of sweet honeyed beer.

    A flowering yarrow in the coffin indicated that the burial took place in the summer months. The girl died at the age of approximately 16-18 years.

    The World of The Egtved Girl: A new experience center in progress
    The Vejle Museums are actively working on realizing a large new museum project that aims to tell the fascinating story of the Egtved Girl. Right there, where she was laid to rest on a summer day 3,500 years ago.

    The entire original Egtved find is exhibited at the National Museum in Copenhagen. So, you'll need to visit the capital to see Egtved Girl herself.

    The Jelling Monuments (UNESCO)

    19.4 km

    The year is 965. Viking King Harald Bluetooth says goodbye to the Norse gods and yes to the Christian God. He had this event engraved on a large runestone in Jelling, near the stone his father, Gorm the Old, erected a few years earlier. On the stone, Harald boasts that he won Denmark and Norway and made the Danes Christian: “King Harald raised this monument after Gorm, his father, and Thyrvé, his mother, Harald who won all of Denmark and Norway and made the Danes Christian.” The runestone is considered Denmark’s baptismal certificate, and the Christ figure from the stone can be found in all Danish passports.

    Gorm the Old’s slightly smaller memorial stone for Queen Thyrvé bears the inscription: "King Gorm made this memorial for his wife Thyrvé, Denmark's adornment." It is the oldest evidence of the name Denmark, and the runestone is therefore called Denmark’s name certificate.

    During his reign, Harald also had two mighty mounds and a massive enclosure, called the Palisade, erected at the site.

    UNESCO World Heritage

    Today, Harald's magnificent Viking complex has a central location in the town center of Jelling. From the top of the mounds, which are about 10 meters high and have a diameter of 70 meters, you have a good view of the monument area. The northern mound had a wooden-built burial chamber, presumably erected by Harald Bluetooth for his father, who was later reburied at the site where Jelling Church stands today. Today's Jelling Church is a Romanesque stone church, built around 1050-1100, and is built on top of Harald Bluetooth's presumed longhouse from the 10th century. In 2000, Gorm the Old was reburied under the church where he was found in 1978.

    In the distance, hundreds of newly erected white concrete posts surround the entire complex and mark the approximate location of the Palisade. From the path, you can experience the interpretation of the 356-meter-long ship setting as well as the placement of the so-called Trelleborg houses. The palisade has been part of the World Heritage site in Jelling since 2018.

    In the middle of the mounds, you can be captivated by the runestones in their beautiful high-tech bronze and glass showcases or find reflection in the church. 

    The Jelling monuments are considered the finest in Europe from the Viking Age and are on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

    Viking Market and the Experience Center Kongernes Jelling

    Every year in July, you can find your inner Viking when the Viking market is held at the monuments. In the beautiful experience center, Kongernes Jelling, the Vikings' life and the exciting history of the monuments unfold in interactive exhibitions. Through digital binoculars on the rooftop terrace, you can see how Jelling looked 1000 years ago.

    Bluetooth Technology

    The Bluetooth technology used everywhere in mobile phones and computers for wireless communication is named after the Danish king, Harald Bluetooth, due to his ability to create new connections and unite different entities.
