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.
