Experience the Viking Age

January 2011


The Viking Age, between 500 and 900 AD, may not be the golden age of Denmark?s history but it is, without a doubt, the historic period for which Denmark is best known.

What could be a more exciting experience for groups visiting Copenhagen than to experience the life and times of the Vikings in a historically authentic environment? The Viking warriors have a reputation for pillaging and ravaging conquered territories but, in fact, were equally astute traders and hardworking settlers.

Some 35 kilometres from Copenhagen, in the heart of the Viking countryside surrounding Roskilde, Sagnlandet Lejre - The Land of Legends - has reconstructed a Viking settlement where people can experience how the Vikings lived some 1,200 ? 1,500 years ago.

At Lejre, you can enjoy a ?hands-on? experience of Viking life and culture by participating in a variety of activities. Just expect a few surprises!

The Challenges
Typically, upon arrival at Lejre, the group could be ambushed by a group of warriors with prisoners being taken as sacrificial gifts to the gods, Thor and Odin. To maintain face and hopefully negotiate the release of the prisoners, the group will meet the local Vikings in the settlement of Lethra, nestled in the hilly countryside and overlooking Lake Bues
