Protected ancient monuments

In Varde and Ringkøbing Skjern municipalities, over a thousand protected ancient monuments have been registered.

The Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces has initiated that all protected ancient monuments are visited by an archaeologist who describes and assesses the condition of the monument. Among other things, they check whether the 2-meter zone around the protected site has been observed. The Cultural History Museums in Holstebro supervise protected ancient monuments in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality, and Sydvestjyske Museer supervises protected ancient monuments in Varde Municipality.

If you have any questions about the protected ancient monuments, or if you believe that a protected burial mound or other protected ancient monuments have been harmed, you are welcome to contact the Cultural History Museums in Holstebro or Sydvestjyske Museer.
