Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Western Norway / Rogaland / Stavanger Municipality / Stavanger / Sverd i fjell
Embedded in the stone of a small hill, Sverd i fjell marks the site of a historic battle in which King Harald Fairhair united Norwegian people into one kingdom in 872 CE. Modeled after Viking swords and symbolizing unity, peace, and freedom, the three swords stand 10 m (33 ft) tall next to the fjord. One interpretation says that the sword topped with the small crown represents the conquering King Harald and that the other two stand for the defeated kings. The spot offers a good opportunity for quiet solitude or a picnic. By using our Stavanger journey planner, you can arrange your visit to Sverd i fjell and other attractions in Stavanger.

Very cool place to stop by and see. Wonderful attraction. Definitely worth 10 minutes of your day.
