    Foteviken Viking village

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Foteviken is a unique place in viking Scandinavia as it isn't a museum or heritage place (like Hedeby, Birka, Trelleborg or Borg) but rather a village where people live viking life during summer and where you are given guided tours by the inhabitants and can then wander around people's houses as you wish, looking at the great hall, the king's house, the catapult or the ship and many other things. Should you wish to live viking life yourself, that's no problem. Just contact them about joining the "SVEG" society, don your viking robe and live a few weeks with archery, handicrafts, house building and barbecuing evenings, sometimes even parties in the "Ting Hall". If that is too much for you, just rent a cottage outside the village and explore both viking life and the surrounding countryside.
