Ribe Viking Center
Have you longed to wear a helmet and chain mail while fighting with swords? Suit up at the Ribe Viking Center, which transports you back several millennia to a time when fighting and plundering were a way of life in Scandinavia. In this fully re-created Viking world, you can learn what life was like in a typical coastal Danish town during the 9th and 10th centuries. Visit the Icelandic horses in the stables, watch an ancient sacred ritual, practice archery, learn Viking games, and watch artisans, blacksmiths and musicians ply their trades in the market. But the highlight is warrior training—don a helmet and learn how to wield a sword, spear and shield just like a true Viking.
