Food and drink

You can buy hot and cold drinks and ice cream for consumption outside. There are tables and benches in front of the museum and in the green area by the mound with a view of Kerteminde Fjord.


You are also welcome to bring a packed lunch.


Both the museum building and the Viking ship burial mound are disability-friendly with ramps and without doorsteps. The museum building also has a lift.


The route from the car park in front of the museum building to the museum building itself, and the route from the latter to the mound can be a challenge because of the gravel and the dirt path, which, it goes without saying, is not 100% flat.

In the basement of the museum building there is a toilet, which is suitable for people with disabilities. The basement is easily accessible with the lift.

Guests with disabilities can also bring a companion free of charge if he/she is in possession of a companion card. Guide dogs are also welcome.

The museum has a wheelchair that can be borrowed.
