The Viking Village in Albertslund, Copenhagen, has something special for you and it is called Vikingebro. Just outside Copenhagen is this historic village with three houses and a farmhouse and now a bridge. The bridge called Vikingebro is a reconstruction of the original Ravning Bridge built by King Harald "Bluetooth" Gormsson back in 980 AD. The 700 m bridge is the newest tourist attraction that one shouldn't miss out on. Now open to public, the bridge is the world's longest viking bridge and a result of three years of heard work by the locals of Viking Village and the Kroppedal Museum. But why visit a bridge? This isn't just any bridge, it is in fact one-of-a-kind. More than a thousand children along with local expert craftsmen and volunteers have built this bridge, completely hand-built with viking tools and techniques. A perfect example of viking craftsmanship, the Vikingebro bridge can be a great introduction to Viking culture and society. The village itself is a great place to be, it showcases the way vikings lived back in the day.
