Wikinger Museum Haithabu (DE)
The (re)of the Viking houses at Haithabu is based on the results of over 100 years of research at this site. The conservation of organic material allows detailed conclusions about the looks of the houses back then.
The Wikinger Haithabu presents one of the most modern archaeological exhibitions in Europe. The visitor is taken on a journey to the early city life of 1,000 years ago using unique original finds and innovative media. In this context one will find the seven (re)constructed houses at the historical site of Haithabu in the role of explanatory models in true scale in which the visitors can immerge using all their senses. The construction of the houses has already followed the phrase "the road is the goal" when they were built in front of the eyes of the visitors as presentation of early medieval constructional techniques. Already since 1995 in the outdoor area of the Viking Museum Haithabu activities with experimental character took place, spatter being moved to the (re)constructed houses. Nowadays different crafts are being presented regularly, for the information for the visitors.
