When you step through the gate to Bork Viking Harbour, you step 1000 years back in time. You can walk around the reconstructed long-houses and see how the Vikings lived and worked different kinds of craftsmanship. Light a candle in the beautiful stave church or place a sacrifice at the sacrificial grove and see the handmade Bork tapestry.
If you visit Bork Viking Harbour when there are extra events and living history, all your senses come alive and the kids get to try out the different activities. If you pay Bork Viking Harbour a visit during a more quiet period, you’ll have the time and space to pay extra attention to the craftsmanship and the beautiful details in the Viking houses.
At Bork Viking Harbour, the kids get to take part in the Viking era. They can sail little Viking ships in the moat, dress up in Viking clothes, play Viking games, and see how strong they are at the Viking playground.
