Viking Warriors!

Viking warriors July 29 till August 4, 2019

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.

Every year warrior groups from Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands meet to take part and give us all a dramatic week characterized by conspiracy, blackmail, revolts, battles, thing assemblies, negotiations, faith and much more. And it's all part of a story which evolves over the week. If you are curious but unable to visit Ribe VikingeCenter, you can stay updated on the story on facebook.com/ribevikingecenter.

Ragnar Lothbrok is dead!

Ragnar Lothbrok has died in England and his three sons - the arrogant Halfdan, the ferocious Ubbe and the tactical Ivar - return to the land of the Danes and Ripa in order to recapture the power. The brothers are not exactly best pals, but perhaps they might be able to agree on the perfect attack on England?
