Visits for business groups

Take your colleagues on a trip away from the office

The Viking Ship Museum offers sailing-trips, guided tours, hands-on activities, team-building and meeting facilities for business groups.

Do you need some fresh air and new exciting experiences together? At the Viking Ship Museum, you’ll get to know each other in a completely new and different way when your teamwork is tested outside of the usual settings. 

The Viking Ship Museum offers social events for summer tours, teambuilding and unusual meeting rooms, that can help re-energise your work. 

On sailing trips with the beautiful Nordic boats, each participant has an important role to play: everyone pulls an oar, sets the course and several of you will work together to raise the large sail. All sailing trips are led by the Viking Ship Museum’s professional instructors – but it’s up to you as the crew to make the trip a success. 

Learn about innovation, collaboration and delegation of tasks in the Viking Age, both at sea and via our various guided tours, which include the 5 original Viking ships and the working boatyard, where the boatbuilders reconstruct Viking Age ships using replicas of contemporary tools. 

In collaboration with Sagens Natur, we also offer team-building and team-bonding both at sea and on land. 

Our Café Knarr can provide food and drink inspired by the Viking Age.

Sailing trips for groups

Get away from the office and sail out on the fjord for a unique experience with colleagues. 

On the Viking Ship Museum's sailing trips, the participants are the ship's crew. We use the same means of propulsion as the Vikings did: oars, square sails and the raw muscle power of the crew.

Guided tours

The Viking Ship Museum offers guided tours in Danish, English and German. Our guides provide an insight into the importance of Viking ships.

If you want a special tour, it is possible to book specialised tours with a museum curator or boat builder on a selected topic.

Workshops and talks

The Viking Ship Museum organises lectures with craft specialists and researchers on seafaring in the Viking Age and the Middle Ages.

Lectures about the longship the Sea Stallion and its journey to Ireland can be booked out of the house for association evenings, employee events or similar.

Picnic basket

Café Knarr on Museum Island offers a picnic basket for companies with delicious 'New Nordic Viking Food'. A trip to the great outdoors and into nature helps creativity and concentration. 

It is also possible to combine the picnic basket with other activities at the museum. If you need a full day out of the office with new experiences and wind in your hair, you can take a sailing trip, for example.

 “I’ve arranged for clients to experience life as a Viking in Roskilde, one of the oldest towns in Denmark. They got a private tour of the Viking Ship Museum then boarded a replica Viking ship for a private sail on the Bay of Roskilde where they were able to assist the crew and feel how hard it was to sail in that era.”
