Lejre –Home of the Scyldingas
According to legend the Scyldingas, Denmark’s first royal dynasty, had their centre of power here in the Iron and Viking Ages (500-1000 AD). The Scyldingas may be mythical kings, but archaeological finds at Lejre Museum indicate that Denmark’s cradle is Gl. Lejre. Explore traces of 650 m2 of royal halls, which are among the most well-known buildings from ancient times.
The museum’s Mythical Kings of Lejre exhibition uses archaeological finds, sound, lighting and an interactive design to provide an in-depth look at the history of Lejre and also presents the Mannerup Treasure up-close, Denmark’s largest find of ancient silver.
