The Runestone park is an exhibition where ancient rune stones are depicted in natural size and with original paint. Here you can see what runestones looked like when they were new 1000 years ago.

Runestones from Birka and Hovgården?
They are here, well depicted and have clear signs with information in both Swedish and English.

Well made and detailed

The Runestones in the park are so well made and detailed that they can be used for both research and studies. A visit to the Runestone Park is an experience that makes you look at the rune stones with brand new eyes.

In the Runestone park there are also:

My runestone workshop
