The Ravning Bridge
Viking King Harald Bluetooth and his people built a mighty bridge over the Vejle Ådal river valley in 979AD. At the site in Ravning Enge you can see a reconstruction of two bridgeheads. The original bridge was 760 metres long and about 5.5 metres wide and had a carrying capacity of five to six tons. It consisted of 1,700 posts and 800 struts as well as timber for the roadway.
The Ravning Bridge remained Denmark's longest bridge until the opening of the old Little Belt Bridge in 1935.
The former station building from the Vejle-Vandel Railway, located a few meters from the reconstructed bridge, showcases an exhibition on the bridge, the findings and the excavations. Here you can also learn about the railway and the station.
In January and July, the Vejle Museums publishes an activity brochure, which is available from local public libraries, tourist offices and exhibition venues. You can also access the brochure at www.vejlemuseerne.dk
