Viking for a day

Durring the Autumn Holiday, 12- 20. October, we invite you to join us for 'Viking for a day'.

Become a Viking for a day - join the activities for all girls and boys. Every day, we offer the chance to live out your dream of being a Viking.

Take part in warrior training as a man-at-arms and challenge the adults to tests of strength, throwing games and tug-of-war. Every day, the proud chieftain will display his weapons and teach the young warriors to fight with sword and shield. You can also bake Viking biscuits over an open fire!

In the viking workshop you can:

  • Dress up as a Viking warrior
  • Take part in warrior training with the chieftain
  • Strike royal coins
  • Paint your own shield in beautiful colours 
  • Design your own jewellery
  • Decorate your own Thor's hammer, to give your strength in fighting 


Want to learn all about Viking ships?
From October 12-20 there will be daily guided tours in English at 15.00. The guided tours focus on the five original Viking ships from Skuldelev, exhibited in the Viking Ships Hall. The ships bear witness to the specialised sea faring of the Viking Age, to wars and raids, trade and voyages to distant shores and life in the North 1000 years ago. 

Taste the Viking Age
When hunger strikes, Café Knarr offers New Nordic Viking Food ad beverages. If you want to try your own hand at making food, you can bake some biscuits over the open fire!

Climb Aboard - a new exhibition in the Viking Ship Hall
The exhibition takes you to the open sea where the weather changes from calm breeze to storms, thunder and high seas while the day changes from clear and bright morning to the darkest night.
