Birka - The Viking City by Boat highlights

Museum
At the museum at Birka you can learn more about the exciting history of Vikings through the fascinating exhibitions which depict what day to day life in Birka would have been like during Viking Age. Discover the archaeological findings from the excavations and join a guided tour to really understand this important part of Stockholm’s and Birka’s history.

Viking houses
The Viking houses at Birka are perhaps the most popular attraction. Admire the reconstructed houses built with the same techniques as the Vikings to really bring to life the true atmosphere of life in the Viking age. Walk through the reconstructed Viking village and you’ll be transported back in time to the 700s.

The tour is run by Strömma. Tickets must be redeemed from a Strömma kiosk (See locations and opening hours below). 

Please note

  • You are not able to pre-book tours with Go City so during the summer we reccommend visiting the ticket booth early the same day to collect a sightseeing tour ticket. Sometimes there are a lot of visitors, and some tours may be full during the high season.
  • If you do not get a ticket to one of the tours, you had planned you can ask for tickets to the next tour on the same day.
