Step back to an age of exploration, discovery, and trade at Ribe Vikinge Center. As you walk through the grounds of this historical site, you will learn about the basics of Viking life, including how they harvested, shopped, cooked, and played. Start at the marketplace from 710 CE where merchants from all over Denmark come to sell leather, bones, glass, and jewelry. In Ribe town, which represents life in 825 CE, you can meet inhabitants and craftsmen, such as the shoemaker and carpenter. Don't miss the Manor farm from 980 CE, where you will learn about the farming techniques and daily chores of Vikings life. You may be lucky enough to spot a Viking warrior or one on horseback riding through the town. You may also enjoy archery lessons and coin minting. Keep in mind that many of the actors here only speak Danish. Plan my trip to Esbjerg with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Beautiful and huge outdoor museum with enthusiastic dressed people making you feel you are back in the viking age. For kids there is a treasure hunt available in many languages making it a fun way to discover the village and learn a thing or two about that era. Make sure to try the games from that time. It is a lot of fun to do!
We loved this place. It's a real Viking village and you can feel and experience those time and the lifestyle. Highly recommended!
