The Vikings in Frederikssund

Every summer the Frederikssund citizens step forward as true vikings, when both adults and children pull on their viking costumes and perform the annual viking play. When the darkness falls, and the stories from the nordic mythology are told live on the open-air stage, you can't help imagining how the vikings traded, lived and sailed on Roskilde Fjord. Don't miss the annual viking festival, the viking battles or other viking events during the summer.

Experience the Frederikssund Viking Settlement

Visit the "open air museum" Frederikssund Viking Settlement and explore how the vikings lived in the Viking period.

The purpose of the open air museum was to extend the Viking activities with a historically accurate reconstructed village that would give the audience an opportunity to discover how the Vikings lived and worked.

In 1994 the private foundation Frederikssund Viking Settlements, in cooperation with Frederikssund Municiplaity and other foundations, began the construction of a cluster of pit houses, a walkway and a jetty that serves as a landing spot for Viking ships sailing on the Roskilde Fjord.
