Based upon archaeological finds from the Iron Age, Lejre Research Centre is used by scientists and academics but is also open to the general public. Visitors can learn about old working methods, sail on the lake in hollow tree trunks, listen to stories about sacrifices and see how pre-historic man lived. Lejre is great for families with children and is well worth the 40km drive from Copenhagen. Visitors can bring their own picnic or prepare an authentic pre-historic meal on the open fires. Admission: DKK 75; students DKK 65; children DKK 45
