Reconstructed Viking houses from the Viking Age trading centre of Hedeby (also known as Haithabu in German) in what used to be part of the Danish Vikings' territory. It now lies in Germany, near the city of Schleswig on the Jutland peninsula. Along with Birka in present-day Sweden, Hedeby was the most important Viking Age trading centre in Europe. These reconstructed houses are part of the Hedeby Viking Museum (Danish: Vikingemuseum Hedeby; German: Wikinger Museum Haithabu) in Busdorf, Germany.
