Conference Tours

Free for conference participants.

The aim of our conference tours is to provide opportunity for informal networking, possibly creating partnership among the conference participants.

First conference tour: Kronborg
Tuesday, June 25

The bus leaves at 10.00 from the conference venue.

Kronborg Castle is a magnificent renaissance castle, probably the most famous of Danish castles. It is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.  
Its fame arose with William Shakespeare’s drama of Hamlet that takes place in the chambers of Kronborg. 

A tour of the castle (entrance fee 90 DKK) will take you through beautifully decorated rooms with renaissance and baroque interiors. Among the main attractions is Frederik II’s fine ballroom and the statue of Ogier the Dane, a mythical national hero that has been sitting in the cold casemates below the castle for hundreds of years.

The tour is non-guided, but accompanied by the IISES team.

Lunch and entrance fees are not included.

We will be back at around 17.00. The time of return is approximate and cannot be guaranteed.

Participants who registered for this conference tour will receive a tour voucher at the registration desk. 

Children under six years are not allowed on the tour.

Second conference tour: Foteviken Open Air Museum
Thursday, June 27

The bus leaves at 9.00 from the conference venue. We will cross the bridge over the Oresund Bay to the southern Sweeden, where the open air museum is situated.

Foteviken Museum (entrance fee 110 SEK) is an archaeological open air museum that shows how life might have been in a town during the late Viking Age - early Middle Ages. Aside from traditional exhibitions the museum has a reconstructed Viking town with 23 buildings of different kinds, and a reconstructed Viking ship based on an archaeological find in the Bay of Foteviken.

You can explore a rebuilt Viking village with its bakery, blacksmith, smokery and its defense tower. The village is built on the same spot where a viking battle took place in year 1134. Everything is made following archeological discoveries. That is the reason why this village is usually chosen as a filming location for movies and documentary movies about Vikings.

The tour is non-guided, but accompanied by the IISES team.

Lunch and entrance fees are not included.

We will be back at around 18.00. The time of return is approximate and cannot be guaranteed.
