Midvinter Festival

Are you ready for the Vikings? Scandinavia’s rich, somewhat rough and ready cultural history is coming to Copenhagen at the Midvinter Festival.

Østerbrohuset will be transformed into a colourful myriad of warriors, elves, orcs, Vikings, medieval folk and performers.

Put on your Viking costume (for a 20kr discount on entry) and find out how their ships were made and what crafts were most important at the time. And then take your expertise to find a bargain at the market.

No Viking event is complete without several fight re-enactments, and you can even try swinging a sword under the guidance of skilled instructors.
