UNESCO considering Danish Viking heritage

The Danish Viking castle Trelleborg near the town of Slagelse, and other similar castles around the country might be included on the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage in June 2015.

Earlier this year The Danish Agency for Culture formally applied to get the Danish Viking fortresses on the list, and a representative from UNESCO has just visited Trelleborg. The castle was already in 2009 included on the Danish list of future sights for the UNESCO list. The application also includes several Viking sites in Norway, Iceland, Latvia and Germany.

The UNESCO representative, an archaeologist, received a thorough introduction to Trelleborg, its organization, structure and history.

If you have a client or an incentive group who might be interested in visiting the Viking castle of Trelleborg, this would be a perfect destination for a tour outside Copenhagen.

The history of the Viking’s plays a major part of the Danish identity, and is also of great interest to visitors from around the world.

The transport time to Trelleborg is about one hour each way by coach, Hadler DMC Scandinavia will arrange all the logistics including coach and guide.
