A great place to step back and be a Viking! Lots of activities were going on when we visited. Children were able to mint a coin, dress up in Viking armour and try some archery. There were demonstrations on the different aspects of Viking life....More

Our younger kids loved the activities and the interactions, the teenagers just waited it will end, it was good if the Viking center would address all ages, but currently it is not.

Great day - a step back in time. Historic hands getting that feel for how the Vikings lived. See How they lived, cooked, made their own tools, fought like true fighters, raised animals, grew their own food. A great day out in the open. Can...More

pros: a small skansen with live attractions, toys and actitivties to try, kind staff, nice place, quality souvenirs in the shop, cafe, picnic places, fun for kids cons: small - but that's why it's enough 1-2 hours to get around

You can also get there by train. It is also about 3,5 hours. When you come to the railway station it is the easiest to take a taxi. But we are situated only 2,5 km. south of Ribe so you can walk on a nice secure footpath if... More
