Vikings from all over the world meet at the Viking Moot to recreate the festive markets held in the early days of Aarhus.

Moesgård Allé 15

8270 Højbjerg

The market stalls offer a wealth of interesting articles, and craftsmen produce fine items of iron, wood, leather, silver, wool, amber, glass, willow, and many other materials.

The Viking Moot, an annual event

The Viking Moot at Moesgård Beach is an annual event, which takes place on the last weekend in July - the weekend closest to July 28, the feast day of St. Olaf. In the Middle Ages and probably in the Viking Age too, this day was a fair day in Aarhus.

Activities for every taste

Visitors can try their skills at different activities. Archery is especially popular, and here children and adults compete for the best result. However, there are activities for every taste, and all age groups can take part.

Highlights of the Viking Moot

The highlights of the Viking Moot are the combating warriors and fierce horsemen, who show their skills on Saturday and Sunday at twelve and three o'clock. The warriors cross swords in formidable battles, incited by a cheering crowd. Horsemen on Icelandic horses ride in procession, and the most daring plunge into wild rides.


Adults: DKK 140,-
Free admission for children under the age of 18.
