New dates for the International Viking Market 2021

Due to the present Covid-19 situation we have decided to adjust the dates for this year's market event. The International Viking Market will take place from Friday April 30 till Sunday May 2. The opening hours all three days will be from 10am till 5pm.

We are at any time prepared to comply with the authorities' regulations to make sure that both reenactors and visitors can have a safe experience in Ribe VikingeCenter.

We cannot know which regulations will apply in Denmark in April/May, but for now we aim to go through with the Viking Market. It's important for us to make this announcement now and give some sort of clarity in this otherwise unpredictable time.

Sadly, we must expect less foreign Vikings and visitors to be able to travel to Denmark, and since they make up for most of the activity during the weekdays, we have decided to have the event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as that Friday is a public holiday in Denmark. We would rather offer a short and adventure-packed market than a long and quiet one.

During the weekdays after the Viking Market (from May 3) we will be open as usual and offering the daily activity programme.

We will let you know about any other necessary changes to the programme here on our website, on Facebook and on Instagram.
