Denmark, Day 4-Part 2, The Ribe Viking Center!

The Ribe Viking Center transported me back in time. Every hut, every craft demonstrated, every vegetable and herb grown in the garden, all the goats, chickens, pigs, and cattle, has been reconstructed with meticulous detail. Where possible all materials used are those that would’ve been the standard for the ninth and tenth centuries. Since, there’s no way I can convey how astounding the experience was, I decide to let my pictures paint the afternoon for you.

The last picture is of the blacksmith’s drool-worthy arms. Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed watching him work.

We ate lunch in a nearby town, and then headed off to Silkeborg, which is a town located in the middle of the Jutland peninsula, and is considered the lake and forest vacation spot of Denmark. I can’t stop talking about the Ribe Viking Center and I know my dreams will be overrun with Norsemen, Valhalla, and Harald Bluetooth.
