We loved this. The kids had a great time finding the culprit who stole Frida's salt. All the things they could do, it was amazing and so much fun. The grown-ups had just as much fun looking around and joining the kids in the salt mystery. And I think our daughter will try out archery at home now.

Very interesting historic park. We were surprised by the knowledge of "actors" they will answer all your questions. The park is big with different activities over the day. Also, there's a restaurant for a quick break during the visit. Must visit if you are near Ribe.

It was quite good but we expected a wider range of activities which were available with the activity pass. The ones available targeted mainly younger children with an age range of 6 to 12 years. Other than that the Viking Center was beautifully arranged.

Great place to stop and be taken back in time. Very friendly staff and great entertainment for kids to try fighting like Vikings and shoot bow and arrow, wood carvings and coin making.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
