Viking burial ground

Nice area, with ship shaped graves. Stone circles and a big hill for the Viking king Anund and several small ones.

A historical sightseeing stop that you can't miss when in Västerås. You can feel the history around you and fantasize about prehistoric times. A very nice and cheap cafe is situated next to it with only home made delicacies. You won't regret a visit here. It's even nicer if you rent a bike to get here.

Here you will find Sweden's largest Viking ship collection and a very big grave hill form a Viking king Anund. The area is very beautiful and well worth a visit if you are in the area. Very nice visit for Families as there is a nice outdoor area for kids.

The place is on outskirts of the town and is of historical significance. We went there to spend a Sunday, and enjoyed the site. the site was full of descriptions mentioning the history of the area. All in all a nice place to spend a few hours.

Don't miss this place when you are visiting Västerås. In the summertime there are events there, but you can climb the large heap any time.

Really interesting history - the immediate mounds and stones are good for a pleasant walk - about 1 hour total, but the entire complex is much larger and could be a day's outing

On a sunny day worth a trip. A giant burial mound/tumulus surrounded by some smaller urn graves and four ships settings build of standing stones forming the outline of (viking) ships. But get there before 11.00 am or you may have to share your experience with too many other visitors. The surrounding area is very beautiful and at the parking... More

This is one of my favourite place in Vasteras. The nature is really breathe taking and there is so much history here. Viking tombs, rune stones and big stone ships. There is a free audio walk you can take if you have a QR reader on your phone/tablet. A must visit if you're in Vasteras.
