Cherry Festival 2018

Tid: July 21-22, 11 AM - 4 PM
Sted: Kerteminde

Meet the Vikings at the Cherry Festival.

At this year’s Cherry Festival, you can feel the Viking period, or almost. You can test how clever you are at making things that were useful in the everyday life of Vikings.

Try making raffia rope, practice tying knots, cut runes in wood and more. This year the volunteer corps of the Viking Museum at Ladby will teach about Viking times at the Renaissance Harbour, near where the Ladby Dragon will be moored.

Make some Viking handiwork and be there when the Ladby Dragon returns from its first sail beyond the fjord.

It worked! It is possible to send a message over long distances with the help of beacons with signal fires - and it is fast!
