Viking Festival

Visit the Vikings encampment and browse the market stalls. The Viking week is the 23rd time this year!

There are plenty of stalls selling everything from jewelry to clothes, soap to honey wine, weaponry to toys. The Vikings also do not like to sit still, they like to talk about daily life in the early Middle Ages. Over the weekend, they demonstrate the various weapons and clothing used and worn by the Vikings. The Vikings are diligent farmers, skilled craftsmen, smart traders, brave fighters and above all fearless explorers.

The Vikings have left much of an impression to this day. Many place names, especially in England, therefore come from the Scandinavian language. Jewelry and utensils used by the Vikings have been found all over Europe. People also wrote about the Vikings. The English thought they were weird - before a big fight, they spent hours washing themselves, combing their hair and braiding beards. The Vikings believed that if they died in battle, they could go to Valhalla. A place where people would party and fight forever. And then you better look a little neat!
