Are you ready for a Vikingfest?

During Pentecost well over two hundred Vikings will be invading the Prehistorisch Dorp! Meet traders, fighters, artisans, and entire Viking families. Be quick to secure a ticket for this special event.

A worldly Pentecost at the preHistorisch Dorp

During the weekend of Pentecost, the Eindhoven open-air museum looks completely different than on a regular day: you run into Vikings everywhere and feel like you’re smack in the heart of the Early Middle Ages. And there’s not just fighters, but also many artisans who will show you how the Vikings made their goods. Make new Viking friends and emerge yourself in a weekend full of adventures and history!
Stroll alongside traders from far and wide

Experience the unique atmosphere of 1300 years ago on the preHistorisch Dorp’s market square! This year, there will be dozens of special traders across the museum. Take the smith, with beautiful ironwork, knives, axes, and more. Or visit the jewellery artist for exquisite golden, silver, and bronze jewels. You will really make your accessories shine with handmade glass beads. There are also plenty of materials for clothes: handmade shoes, hand-spun or hand-woven fabrics and many more. Will you be bringing little children? In that case, do make a stop at the stand with a wide variety of children’s toys.
