Runestone park
(Runstensparken)

An attraction on southern Adelsö.


Address: Lindbyvägen 62

Open: 10:00 to 18:00 every day.

From 2 April to 30 September.


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
If I (Kalle Runristare) are on site, feel free to come and look and ask. If you booked me as a guide in the park, a tour of my work is included.


A quiz walk

You compete against yourself or your friends. There are no awards, only personal honor and fame.


A kiosk

Limited supply and uneven opening hours. Coffee, soft drinks, ice cream and tourist information etc.

The guide booklet always available to buy at the kiosk, one for Birka and one for Hovgården.


Flea market

Recycling at its best.
