Eastern Norway Vestfold og Telemark TØNSBERG


  • Ollebukta 3, Tønsberg
  •  /  km From You

The world’s most important discovery from the Viking era was made just outside Tønsberg in 1904, The famous Oseberg Viking ship. The Oseberg Viking Inhertiance Foundation has built an exact copy on a voluntary basis, using tools and construction methods from the Viking era. The foundation has also built a copy of the famous Klåstad ship, which the original ship is located at The Slottsfjell Museum.

Both ships can be seen at the building site, Vikingodden in the harbour all year round, except when they are out on a cruise.

In 2021, the contstruction of an archealogical replica of the Gokstad ship will also start. The construction will take place both at Vikingodden in Tønsberg, and by the whaling monument in Sandefjord. Here you have the opportunity to join and build ships with the Vikings´ tools.

Open souvenir shop and guides available in the weekends.

In the summer season it is also possible to row the ship! Availiable tours can be booked at the website!


Be a real Viking!

Tailored programs for groups 10-300 people. As a crew on board the Viking ship, Saga Oseberg, you can learn more about the Viking era.
