23-25.06.2017 – Viking Market
Frederikssund (Region Hovedstaden)
Every summer at the end of June and the beginning of July, Frederikssund, situated on the island Sjaelland, 30 km north of Copenhagen, offers a beautiful open air scenario to recreate the Viking age, thanks to a faithfully reconstructed Viking village with houses of wooden planks and straw, located near wonderful oak and birch woods.
During the period of Viking Plays the open air theatre offers spectacular performances, the Vikingespillene, based on stories from Danish folklore and literature and performed by non professional actors in historical costumes, who create realistic representations of the historical past through ancient Viking and Norse sagas.
In addition, visitors can visit the famous Viking market, one of the biggest in the area, enjoy music shows, displays with replicas of weapons and final bonfire welcoming the arrival of summer. The Viking Festival held during two days offer various displays and activities for the public of all ages: storytelling, fencing, Icelandic horses, everyday life of the Vikings, ax throwing and many more.
Please contact the Organizers for confirmation and further details.
