By strolling around the city, you can learn about how the Vikings lived, building customs, religion, food and crafts.

Gathering together for a party and a good meal was also important for the Vikings. In "Heidrun" you can taste food prepared using old methods from raw materials that were available 1000 years ago. Boiling pits, smoking, salting and fermentation are methods used, and the ingredients can be both meat, fish, barley groats and various vegetables. Everything seasoned with herbs you could find in nature.

To get the most out of your visit, we recommend that you join "The Viking Experience", which is a guided tour of the city. In 45 minutes, you will get an interesting introduction to life as a Viking. The tours run frequently and are included in the entrance ticket.
