Create an itinerary including Ribe Vikinge Center
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.

  • Very nicely done. A must-do for every tourist in the neighborhood. Friendly staff (willing to answer your questions), detailed houses, informative.... Dogs are allowed. Kids can buy an activity card and there is a very pretty themed playground.
  • We loved this. The kids had a great time finding the culprit who stole Frida's salt. All the things they could do, it was amazing and so much fun. The grown-ups had just as much fun looking around and joining the kids in the salt mystery. And I think our daughter will try out archery at home now.
