Schools

Try our curriculum-adapted school programme!

Let students become vikings for a day!

Back to now

Are your class learning about the Viking Age, or another historical period, in school? The Viking Times offers curriculum-adapted pedagogical programmes for school classes in which the mixture of theory, practice and playfulness is the key.

Welcome to a different kind of history lesson!

We offer two different types of lessons that can be combined or ordered separately. We recommend that you start with Traveling Viking and then follow up our visit with Viking for a day. Thereby, you'll get a good foundation before your visit with us and the students will be able to assimilate as much knowledge as possible. When booking both lessons, we also offer a favorable package price!
