Calendar of Events

Viking Days


On the 14th and 15th of September the visitors of the Archaeological Open-Air Museum (AFM) Oerlinghausen await the Viking Days for the 24th time. "Living like the Vikings" is for many a serious hobby. So serious that sometimes even science can learn something from them. The Viking Days are one of the most traditional events of this kind in Europe: over 100 Viking performers from Germany, the Netherlands, England and Poland return to Lippe. A wide variety of demonstrations and hands-on activities await our guests: fashion shows, battle shows, forges and many small actions characterize the special character in the midst of a unique market happening.
