Gamla Uppsala

Recommended
Gamla Uppsala is the site of the original Uppsala. Visitors can freely explore this major archaeological site comprising three hills, which are in fact three royal burial mounds: those of the princes of the Ynglinga dynasty, descending all the way back to Odin. A fourth, albeit highly eroded, is located to the east of the site. Archaeologists have also discovered 250 to 300 tombs. Objects and jewellery unearthed here are displayed in the museum.
