Runriket

Jarlabankes bro

In the area around Lake Vallentuna there are unusually many rune stones from the late Viking Age. In fact, in no other place in the world are there as many rune stones as right here. The inscriptions tell moving stories of the lives and fates of people in ancient times. The events took place a thousand years ago, often exactly where the stone now stands. We call this area “The Rune Kingdom.” Here you can wander in the beautiful landscape and explore history on your own. The entranceway to the Rune Kingdom is easy to find, and around the lake are eight more points to discover.
