Viking Age traders - guided tour for the whole family

Viking ships provided new opportunities for the people who lived in the Nordic region more than 1000 years ago. In these seaworthy ships, traders set out on long sea voyages. To Greenland in the north, to Byzantium and the great cities of the Mediterranean in the south. From here they brought back exotic goods never before seen in Scandinavia.

In the Viking Age, the first cities emerged in Denmark. Here you could trade the precious goods that had been sailed home from distant lands. 

Join us on the family tour, where you will go on a raid with the great man 'Ottar' on his journey from northern Norway to the trading town of Hedeby in southern Denmark. What might he have brought in his large trading ship?

All participants in the tour are included in the narrative and become part of the story of the Vikings' voyages to foreign shores, as told by the museum's dedicated guides.

There is a family tour at 11:30 every day during the winter holidays February 10-25.

During the winter break, there are also other exciting experiences and activities for the whole family.
