Ale vikingagård

ALE VIKINGAGÅRD
A Viking chieftain farm under construction that, when fully finished, will be an authentic reconstruction of how a chieftain may have lived during the Viking Age. The farm is intended to have several buildings surrounded by a wooden palisade with farm animals and cultivation of Viking Age crops.

The farm is based on a find from the 10th century in Tissø, Denmark. it is located in a forest glove with a view of the Göta River, not far from the location where a Viking age ship, Äskekärrsskeppet, was found. The first building, the chieftain's hall, was completed in 2007 and the next reconstruction project was the large feast hall.

The Viking farm is open to the public during the summer and is inhabited by Vikings who will welcome you. You can try out archery, baking bread, making pearl necklaces, wool felting, wood carving, axe throwing and more.
