Café Knarr at the Museum Island

Go on board the Viking culinary world

Café Knarr serves food that is prepared according to the principles of the 'New Nordic Vikingfood'. We use the raw materials which were known by the Vikings, so there is neither potatoes, tomatoes or cucumbers, but flatbread, angelica, sea buckthorn and pearl barley.

The food connects maritime history and Viking commodities and invite museum visitors to experience the five original Viking ships in new ways. At the same time the food tells the story of the world the Vikings met on their travels to distant places and the food cultures they met there.

Taste our seasonal lunch plate, salads, sandwiches, homemade cakes, hot drinks, organic must, soda and beer.

We look forward to give you a good experience in Café Knarr - you are welcome in the Café both with and without an entrance ticket to the museum.
