You can find quite a lot of different tourist facilities dedicated to the Vikings in Scandinavia. The most common are longhouses and circular fortresses.

Viking Castle Fyrkat Yuriy Buriak

In Denmark and Sweden there are 7 such defense structures. One of them can be visited near the town of Hobro. The fortress was built about 980. For tourists this is just a small grassy hill, so this place is more interesting from a historical point of view.

In the very center of the fortress, in the grass, we found a big hare. He jumped only a meter away from us and I think we were scared even more than he. So be careful :)

Theoretically, the entrance should be paid, but we have not seen anyone there and just passed. A kilometer from the castle there is also a Viking center (N 56 37.505 E 9 46.882). This is something like an open-air museum and an educational center.

Getting there: parking N 55 06.336 E 10 11.484. There is no bus to the Viking center, but you can get to the city of Hobro (Hobro Busterminal) and then go on foot 2.2 kilometers. Find here the schedule.
