FÓLKVANGR VIKING VILLAGE


The new Viking village is called Fólkvangr, and is located in the field by Gildehallen. (What was earlier known as the Viking Village is now Kaupangr, and it's the place to get all your metal merchandise, as well as tattoos, souvenirs, and, of course, unforgettable concerts!)

Fólkvangr was the goddess Freyja's domain, where half of those that died in combat went upon death, while the other half went to Odin in Valhalla. Freyja got first pick, and favoured the more honourable and less bloodthirsty warriors. Midgardsblot's Fólkvangr is a place for reenactors, by reenactors, and you can apply to buy the special Reenactor's Pass, have a sales stand or become a volunteer by contacting our chieftains at viking@midgardsblot.no
