The Löddeköpinge region is strategically located close to both Malmö and Copenhagen. It is in the middle of the attractive Öresund Region, one of Europe’s most innovative and multi-cultural environments and within an hour’s reach for some 20 million people. This area is full of finds from especially the Viking age - this needs to be made visible for a larger audience.
VikingaTider is a non-profit foundation that is currently developing the concept of an experience park/outdoor museum with an archaeological theme. The scientific base and the most important inspiration for VikingaTider is the remarkable of Viking Age Löddeköpinge.
Today the project has at its disposal a simple base camp with an information hall, office, gift shop, storage space and workshops.
The complete VikingaTider will consist of two main parts; the modern main building - “Fortress of Culture” and the 24 hectares reconstructed Viking Age with farms, animals and crafts. VikingaTider will be an interactive as well as a working archaeology laboratory.
In connection with the temporary “base-camp” a small Viking Age farm is built. The farm is crucial for the school activities and the annual Viking marked, Fröja Thing.
A stave is being planned and it will be a of one the two excavated stave churches on the site.
Every year larger events are arranged, like Walpurgis Night and a Viking weekend. Lectures and school programmes are also a part of the current activities.
