You don't see too many Vikings running around Ribe anymore except at this center, 2km (1 3/4 miles) south of the center. Just follow your nose: The smell of baking bread will lure you here. The bread is baked over open fires by women dressed in early medieval costumes. Such crafts as pottery making and leather work are demonstrated, but it's the falconry demonstrations that lure the visitors. The aim of the center is to reenact Ribe's Viking age, and locals do so by reconstructing buildings, costumes, utensils, tools, and equipment -- even the food. Horses, cows, sheep, hens, and geese run about as in olden days. The centerpiece of the re-created town is a "great house" revealing an early Danish manor reserved for the town's most powerful baron. Other buildings from around 1050 can also be entered.
