We have put together 2 group excursions for the Wednesday afternoon. They require registration – and an extra payment – via the Indico site (same as conference & workshop) and have limited places. Latest sign up/payment for both is 4th of August.

Below the group excursions are also some DIY alternatives that are ‘pay as you go’.

A trip to Vikinga Tider, an open-air museum outside Lund, located on a 25-hectare cultural area rich in animals and nature. Using knowledge from archeological finds, the park has brought the Viking Age and the early Middle Ages of southern Sweden back to life.

You will hear all about Viking customs, conquests and day to day life, and get a ‘show and tell’ update of the latest archeological finds from land & sea, plus play popular games of the time.

  • Bus transportation there/back, 30 min.
  • Archeologically infused tour
  • Try authentic Viking games
  • Coffee/tea and cake
  • Time to visit the shop/café

Just north of the city center we find ‘Lundabryggeriets Ölkällare‘ a pub that serves up fine (local) beers and honest food. You will get to try 5 of their own, locally brewed beers whilst getting to know the brewer, the different types of beer & the history of the brand, everything accompanied by 2 medium plates of ‘Swedish food’.

  • Walk to the venue in a straight line from Stadshallen (800m, 11 minutes)
  • Try 5 different beers from Lundabryggeriet (20 cl each)
  • Try authentic Swedish herring & meatballs (vegetarian alternative offered)
  • Possibility to buy a ‘Nubbe’ (Swedish schnapps) as well, if you dare!
