“Put on your hiking boots”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Pretty interesting attraction for the historically minded, but long distances to walk between the various parts of the place.

“Viking Vacation”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Visited the Haithabu Museum while visiting family in the area. First class museum. We used the English Audio Guide which ws very helpful. The site is very interesting. I had know idea how important that area was to trade during the Viking Era. The town of Haithabu, contolled East West trade between the Baltic and Northsea and also controlled the North/South trade between much of Scandanaiva and Europe.

“Impressive”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

The museum itself displays history in a vivid manner, an impressive presentation of the Viking city. In the longhouses, people live and practice Viking handicraft. All keen to show and explain their craft to you.
