Fotevikens Museum

FOTEVIKENS MUSEUM
Foteviken Museum, with its Viking town, is an archaeological open-air museum. It is located in an attractive setting on historical land by Höllviken beach. Here you can find the world's only reconstructed Viking town.

To wander through the streets between the houses is a unique experience! The houses are constructed on the basis of examples found in the historical and archaeological evidence.

One thousand years ago, the area around the Viking town was one of the biggest trading sites in Viking-period Scandinavia. This was also the place where, around 980, the Viking king Harald Bluetooth established a harbour for his war fleet.

In the museum shop, you can buy books, replica objects etc. There is also a museum restaurant; "Handelsboden" (the Trading Post) which serves lunches during the summer months. Immediately outside the Viking town is a modern holiday village with cottages to rent.
