The Viking Heritage
Vikings ruled Denmark between the 8th and 11th centuries. During those days, raiding and pillaging was common in the country and needless to say, Vikings were feared wherever they went. Raids reached as far as the coasts of France and the Netherlands.
Today, Danish people are peaceful and welcoming. Much of the country’s Viking heritage is depicted in museums, fortresses and historical towns that recreate Viking villages.
Head over to Ribe, Denmark’s oldest town, where Viking roots go as far back as 710 AD. Various indoor and outdoor exhibitions can be seen here. The Museum Ribe’s Viking artifacts were discovered during archeological expeditions. There is also a reconstructed Viking ship that you can jump into for a true Viking experience.
Make sure to include a trip to Roskilde, during your Pavlus tours to Denmark. Roskilde is where the Lejre Experimental Centre is located, which is an open-air living museum with reconstructed towns that depict the Iron Age, Stone Age, 19th century farm houses, and Viking markets.
The site is perfect for a family trip with picnic grounds and domestic animals that children can play with. Kids can also join the locals bake their famous Stone Age cookies.
Another great attraction that kids will love is Legoland in Billund. Rides, activities, and miniature replicas of buildings made from Lego bricks make any visit here memorable.
