International Viking Market

International Viking Market May 1-7, 2023

Visit the International Viking Market in Ribe VikingeCenter. Enjoy some incredible days alongside Vikings, craftsmen, warriors, archers, riders, jesters and many others.

1300 years ago, in Viking Age Ribe, the market place by Ribe River was an exciting and tremendously important place. Vikings and other good people came from far and wide to trade and exchange goods right here. The market was known throughout the world, and as it attracted very skilled craftsmen the place buzzed with life. And that's how Ribe was born.

At the International Viking Market you can experience the truly authentic market atmosphere. You will be right in the middle of Viking Age Ripa with its smell of smoke, food and horses, and the sounds of many different languages and of Vikings roaring can be heard throughout the site. Strike a good bargain at the stalls, meet the Icelandic horses, try your aim at archery, and watch the wild battle shows.

The first craftsmen and traders will arrive during the first days of the week. The activities will peak on Saturday and Sunday.

PLEASE NOTE: The stall holders cannot accept card payments and there is no cash machine/ATM on site, so please bring cash (DKK or EUR) in case you would like to make a purchase in the marketplace. In the Ribe VikingeCenter shop, café and at the ticket sales you can pay by card.

Participation as reenactor during the Viking Market is only possible by invitation from Ribe VikingeCenter. More info about this here.
