Vacation in Lejre

Nestled among the hills of Lejre lies the cradle of Danish civilisation, where according to legend King Skjold was the first king. The Skjoldungerne dynasty, as it is known, reigned for generations, making Gl. Lejre Denmark’s ancient seat of power. Across the countryside burial mounds, longhouses and other valuable relics are evidence of the time when our ancestors settled here. 

History comes alive when you explore the countryside, visit Land of Legends LejreLejre Museum or Tadre Mill. Or when you plough through the waters of Roskilde Fjord in a Viking vessel.

Be sure to bring your bike or walking boots to Lejre, which lies withinSkjoldungernes Land – the first national park on Zealand. Go fishing in the fjord. Buy good,organic produce at the farm shops and beer and wine directly where they are produced. Or stimulate your senses by visiting the galleries and workshops of local artists. Welcome to Lejre
