Zum Programm

Viking Festival 

Viking, meaning marauding or piracy in Old Norse, might have described the Viking’s activities, setting out to plunder, rob and pillage.


Today’s Vikings are cut from a different cloth. Peacefully gathering on Schleswig’s Königswiesen every midsummer, the annual Viking Festival is a cheerful, internationally renown happening for the Schleswigians and their many guests from all over the world. In festival times, the Königswiesen next to the Schlei turn into a large picturesque Viking settlement, including a small Viking village for children – with spirited and good-humoured Northmen families all over the place.

. Show fights – like the fabulous "Tampen trekken" (Tug of War), annually taking place in cooperation with the City Marketing Schleswig – as well as colourful markets, dainty Viking snacks, spectacular fire shows, Viking ships on the Schlei - there is a lot to see, to taste and to experience. Watch and marvel - or simply join in! It’s great fun!
