LEJRE MUSEUM

LEGENDS, ROYAL HALLS AND AMAZING ARTIFACTS

Lejre was a center of power and likely a royal seat, during the late Iron age and Viking age. Not only for a single king or a short period of time, but for more than 500 years.

At Lejre Museum you will encounter magnificent artifacts, wild archaeological discoveries and colorful stories about legendary kings.

On this page you can find information about contact and opening hours, so you can plan your next visit to Lejre Museum.

THE ODIN FIGURINE

This silver-figurine from the Viking Age was found in Lejre and depicts the norse god Odin sitting in his high seat, with his two ravens Hugin and Munin by his side.

”Odin from Lejre” is one of a kind. At the museum, you can get up close to the figurine that once heightened its bearer to the absolute elite and become wiser as to why these nine grams of silver suggest that Lejre is the cradle of the Kingdom of Denmark.
