Excellent museum of Hedeby (the Viking name)
Sep 2020
Was really surprised that is was actually Hedeby, a major city of the Vikings. Great museum with very good explanations and materials. And the area with viking houses, harbour and walls. Well worth a detour.

Beautiful Museum and Outdoor Display
Aug 2020
The museum is very interesting, it gives an insight in the activities of this place more than a millennium ago. A reconstruction of the village with people in period costumes adds to the allure. In addition one can go for a walk around the lake. It was not quite clear what all this had to do with Vikings, except for the fact that it dated during their era.

Excellent museum
Oct 2019 • Couples
A visit to this museum can be Highly recommended : it is so well laid out, beautiful architecture and inspiring information of what is known about the settlement besides the display of a selection of finds and illustrative reconstructions. The reconstructed buildings equipped with a’real Viking’ practising his art as a wood cutter is a godsend for children as well as adults.

Great museum
Sep 2019
What a great museum. The visitor's center gave great background on the site. Just wish the cashier had suggested the english tour by headphones when I purchased the ticket and was handed a translation book. It was a little awkward to follow.

The recreated site was amazing. So happy we made the trip.

Very interesting and detailed museum on items, life, housing and ships of the Viking era
Aug 2019
Very interesting and well-done indoor museum in addition to the outdoor Viking village at the lake. Puts the Viking and non-Viking life, economy and culture in Northern Germany into context with Europe, Asia and Greenland. You need to walk to the outdoor part including a somewhat steep terrain. Text is only in German, headlines also in English. For non-Germans, use an audio guide. Make sure you bring enough time with you (2-4 hours).

Nice family outing
Jul 2019 • Family
My daughter, her husband, and her two kids and I went to Haithabu to visit the museum and reproduction village. The outside part was the best for us. The inside 9museum) was interesting but so crowded I couldn’t see many of the exhibits. I still rated it high because it might just be that we went when so many people were on holiday.

Impressive dispaly of viking finds
Jul 2019 • Couples
Go here for an introduction to the viking way of life and get great insight into the history and way of life of the vikings. As a Dane it was great to see the original site of a proud merchant city the largest in the Northern Europe for 300 years, a central part of our cultural heritage. Very rewarding that the vikings here are displayed ads the excellent merchants that they were and not just as the violent warriors usually used. Go to the recontructed village afterwards, very well done indeed.

Good day out
May 2019 • Couples
The Viking Museum has good displays and an excellent reconstructions of the remains of a longship. The walk to the reconstructed village is well worth it, as is the village itself. Pity we did not have the time to walk the Danevirke defence line, which is roughly contemporary with Offas's Dyke in Britain.
