In the delightful town of Frederikssund, the citizens pay homage to their roots for over two weeks of plays, feasts, music, and other forms of Viking frivolity. The Viking Banquet takes place in an enormous hall and is enjoyed as much for the wonderful entertainment as for the food. The Viking Market prides itself on traditional food, drink, and clothing, and other authentic Danish goodies. Danish folklore and history are honored by the plays which have been thrilling audiences for decades.
