Live like a Viking

Ribe is not only Denmark’s but also Scandinavia's oldest town. Ribe's Viking history can be traced back to around 710 AD, when it was a thriving market place by the Ribe River.

Ribe grew throughout the Viking Age to become a bustling city with international trade connections attracting craftsmen and traders from across the world. Excavations in and around Ribe have recovered numerous unique archaeological remnants from this period.
