Historic culture, Denmark

The culture-historical sights in Denmark consist of old, historic buildings, monuments and memorial, placed on historically interesting places, bunker installations, castle ruins, old and intact workshops, cemeteries and burial places with interesting stone formations, iron-age settlements, viking-age villages and castles, grave mounds, long barrows, cromlechs, passage graves – often underground – with burial chambers, as well as other places, which exude a long and eventful history. In the old workshops you can observe how a blacksmith forges a horseshoe over open fire. The many bunker installations and fortifications illustrate life in and around the buildings during World War 2. All around the country you can experience old houses and schools, which appear in the original style with genuine furniture and interior.
