At Ribe Viking Centre you will enter the world of the Vikings. Here parts of the town Ribe has been reconstructed and brought alive as it was during the Viking Age. The Viking ship is moored at the docks and icelandic horses graze by the manor farm. The falconer lets his bird of prey fly, feel the draft when the lanner falcon dives toward the onlookers. It is an atmosphere that needs to be experienced.
Ribe Viking Centre brings alive the culture that laid the foundation of the Viking Age heyday of the oldest town of Denmark, Ribe. Meet the craftsmen, the blacksmith, woodcarver, pearl maker and archers. Try your own hand at archery or baking bread during your stay in the world of the Vikings.
During the first weekend in May Ribe hosts an annual Viking market with hundreds of Vikings, craftsmen, traders, warriors and riders from across Europe gather to sell their good and demonstrate their crafts.
Destination Viking is a new travel experience concept. Partners from a number of countries have come together to develop a borderless tourism destination focusing on the Viking world.
