Autumn activities and Viking role play for children

Autumn activities in Ribe VikingeCenter October 18-22, 2021

Open Monday-Friday 10:00-15:30.

Travel back in time and discover Viking Ripa. We invite all children to take part in the great role play of the year.

A role play for children in Viking Ripa

Rumour has it that there's a treasure hidden somewhere in Viking Ripa. What could it be, whose is it and where might it be? Can you find it?

Visit Ribe VikingeCenter with your brother, sister or good friend and see if you can solve the mystery about the Vikings' legendary treasure. Borrow a costume and explore the Viking town. Look for clues and witnesses.

Age group: About 7-13 years + their parents/grandparents. Especially the youngest will benefit from having an adult or an older sibling come along. The role players will be given a task and are supposed to go search for clues, approach the Vikings that might know something and report back.

Duration: Set aside min. 1 hour, but preferably a little longer. Last entry is at 13:00 as the story ends with an assembly at 14:00. Many children become so involved in the Viking world that they might need more time. Apart from the role play, there are more activities on the programme. Take a look below.

The story: This role play has two chapters. We'll be playing chapter 1 both  Monday and again Tuesday. We'll play chapter 2 both Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 

Price: It is FREE to join the role play when you have purchased admission to Ribe VikingeCenter.
