It's springtime at the Viking harbour and the Vikings are busy getting ready for the many summer expeditions. Preparations for the summer are also underway in the Viking village, where houses and workshops are being prepared. You are of course invited to join in and learn more about how the Vikings prepare for the warmer months.

An exciting story and demonstration of the use and significance of the watermill for the Vikings

The watermill reconstructed at Bork Vikingehavn is based on local finds, and the parts of the mill that the museum could not find locally are inspired by finds of other mills from the same period - all the way to Munich. The mill construction is unique - there are no other reconstructed watermills like this one north of the Danube!
The watermill and its history can be experienced at 12:00 in German and 14:00 in Danish. Find out more here

In addition, you can also experience the following activities this spring:
Explore the houses and ships at the Viking harbour, look inside the church and visit the sacrificial grove. It is also possible to go on riddle hunts and try to catch the Fenris Wolf or save the life of the god Balder.

Spring in the Viking Age can be experienced every day from 11:00-16:00 until 28 June.
