Viking events at IMAGINATION
The impressive legacy of Denmark’s long past awaits you, free of admission. For children, there are many interactive exhibits such as face-painting, sword fighting and lots more. So step back in time and venture into historical Denmark. Come join us at IMAGINATION and get close to Danish Vikings and a nation with thousands of years of history.
You might not believe it, but there is far more to Denmark’s Viking heritage than looting, rampaging and bloodshed! The Vikings were also globalists and great tradesmen, sailing their long ships and riverboats as far as Russia, Constantinople (today’s Istanbul), Greenland and Canada. The history of the Vikings is really amazing!
