Viking Museum Haithabu

During the Viking era, Haithabu was one of the major settlement areas in Northern Europe, alongside Birka (Sweden) and Ribe (Denmark). At the former settlement site within the semi-circular rampart, you can immerse yourself in the era of the Vikings: seven Viking houses show the life of the Scandinavians, and during the summer, a Viking ship sets sail from the pier for a trip across the Schlei.
