Frederikssund Viking settlement

The Frederikssund Viking settlement is the product of the creative thinking and work of participants of the Viking Games who wanted to expand their Viking activities with a historically accurate village.

Established in 1994 the Viking settlement is now a free, open-air museum. There are five pit houses, which are small, cramped dwellings built partly into the ground, a longhouse and a jetty. During the Viking Age pit houses were used as workshops and sometimes as temporary housing.

A visit to Frederikssund in late June or early July gives you the opportunity to experience even more Viking festivities when the annual outdoor Viking Games take place at the Viking settlement. The games are a terrific experience for kids and adults alike.

See what our guests experience

Thousands of tufted ducks arrive at Roskilde Fjord every winter. They stay here until spring, when they fly back north to their breeding sites. During the daytime, the ducks will rest at the lake, Kattinge Sø! Go watch them around sunset. An hour after sunset, the ducks will fly in huge numbers towards Roskilde Fjord, where they go to eat molluscs, worms, aquatic insects and some plants. It is a quite amazing site, when they fly out for dinner – the phenomenon is called ‘black moon’ by the locals. Thanks to @nationalparkskjoldungernesland 👍🏻
