Viking Market at Ishøj
Ishøj (Hovedstaden region)
Ishøj is located in the Region Hovedstaden, about 20 km from Copenhagen. Each year the ancient history and traditions are brought to life at the Ishøj Viking Market. More than 150 Vikings are involved in the event, offering displays of their life and activities and inviting the visitors, adults and children, to participate in games, fights and contests to gain the title of a genuine Viking.
The market stalls, various animations and handicrafts, storytelling, ancient games, displays of Icelandic horses and combats between fierce warriors create a unique atmosphere of a trading center as it was in the Viking age. The event focuses on agriculture and rural life of the Vikings and includes also the concerts with musical instruments used in the Viking times.
