Moesgaard Viking Moot
Visit North Europe’s biggest and oldest Viking market and see Vikings fight! The market takes place at Moesgaard Beach near Moesgaard Museum this weekend, 25 and 26 July. Watch dramatic reconstructions of Vikings at war, or enjoy authentic Viking-age food from the market.
The date for Moesgaard Viking Moot is always the weekend closest to the Saint Olai Day which falls on the 29th of July, when there was a tradition of having markets in the old Aarhus (Aros). There will be two daily battles; the first at 12:00 and the second at 15:00. It is a good idea to arrive early to make sure you get a good view. Alongside the battles are lots of traditional viking market stalls, and places where you can eat authentic Viking flatbreads and fire roasted lamb.
Car parking is available at Moesgård Strand, however only limited car parking is available at the Museum. Bus no. 31 goes to Moesgård Strand via the Main Bus Station in Aarhus. Bus no. 18 goes to Moesgård Museum via Banegårdspladsen (by Aarhus Central Railway Station).
