Birka - The Viking City

Visit the Viking City of Birka

#birkavikingastaden

Here at Björkö, in the middle of lake Mälaren, Birka town was based during the 750's and is today known as Sweden's first city. To this day there are visible traces of the people who were born and who lived and died here. Today Birka is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, going here is almost like travelling back in time.

There are daily guided tours where our guides introduce you to the Viking era. But Birka is also a beautiful island with a historical landscape, perfect for a stroll or a refreshing swim. Restaurant Särimner offers meals and drinks.

Boats depart from Stockholm, Hovgården, Härjarö, Rastaholm and Mariefred and the boat trip is between 15 min to 2 hours.
