Viking House, Sebbersund, Limfjorden

Northhimmerland, west of Nibe

Reconstructed house from a viking settlement

In the northern outskirts of Sebbersund traces of a viking settlement was found in the 1990s. Here was an important trading place from 700 till 1100. Traces of a stave church was found too with a churchyard with graves from the period before Denmark officially was christianized in ab. 960. An exhibition tells about the excavations and there are replicas of the findings. A half buried grubehus (pit house) is reconstructed upon the place. There are various activities during the summer season.
