8 locations with lasting Viking footprint

The travel site Trivago has named the following Top-8 Viking Age locations to visit for their lasting Viking footprint:

  1. Jorvik Viking Center, York, England
  2. Lofotr Vikingemuseum, Lofoten, Norway
  3. Ribe Vikingecenter, Ribe, Denmark
  4. Waterford Viking Triangle, Waterford, Ireland
  5. Birka, Björkö, Sweden
  6. Qaqortoq, Qaqortoq, Greenland
  7. Eiriksstadir, Buoardalur, Iceland
  8. L’Anse aux Meadows, L’Anse aux Meadows, Canada


It seems like Trivago completely overlooked Baltics, Eastern Europe and Russia, and adding a couple should have made this a Top-10 list. It could also be argued that The Danevirke Wall and Hedeby/Haitheby in present day northern Germany is missing.

Whay do you think? Locations that should have been on or left off the list?
