If you've been wondering what life was like in the age of Vikings, Viking Museum Haithabu offers a glimpse. The museum displays a host of Viking artifacts, including part of a sunken Viking ship. Walk along a woodland trail to reach a reconstructed village and experience how its inhabitants would have lived. The houses are adorned with pottery, tables, furs, and textiles. During the summer, you sometimes can catch a ride on a reconstructed Viking ship. Year-round, the museum offers craft demonstrations, such glass bead-making, weaving, archery, and bread-making. Many of the activities allow visitor participation. Put Viking Museum Haithabu on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Busdorf online trip planner.

An interesting place with good displays. Not much in English but I think you can get headsets with different languages. We didn't have much time on our group tour so my husband's went in the museum. I went to the recreated village. Several people were demonstrating old time skills. It is a little bit of a walk to get to the village from the museum but a nice walk.
Very little in English UNLESS YOU BORROW A SPECIAL BOOK FROM BY THE TILL. The 2€ audioguide only has a few chapters to listen to. I spend ages going round trying to remember my schoolgirl German and using Google Translate to very slowly translate some of the descriptions. Then, when I took back my audioguide, I found by chance a copy of a book with ALL the descriptions translated into English. They were by the till that was not being used, and can be BORROWED for the visit. If I had been able to read that when going round, this would be a 5 ***** review.
