Viking Warriors!

Viking warriors July 30 till August 5, 2018

Open every day 11:00-17:00 

The earth is shaking and it smells like trouble. Yes, once again Ripa is on red alert. It's a week full of schemes and riots, thing-assemblies and big fights.

This year's story

The news of Ragnar Lothbrok's death in England have reached his sons and one by one they return to the land of the Danes. The first to arrive is the rather arrogant Halfdan, who immediately takes power and creates a riot in Ripa. Later, the ruthless Ubbe and the scheming Ivar the Boneless turn up in Ripa and the question is: Will they accept the state of things, and will the three very different brothers ever agree on how to avenge their father's death?

This year's story is about Ragnar Lothbrok's very different sons and what might have happened prior to their invasion of England in 865 AD.

If you are curious but unable to visit Ribe VikingeCenter, you can stay updated on the story on facebook.com/ribevikingecenter. Warrior groups from Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands meet to take part and give us all a week characterized by conspiracy, blackmail, revolts, battles, thing assemblies, negotiations, faith and much more.
