The Viking Ship Museum is looking for employees for its cozy café, which is located right in the middle of Museumsøen - close to the wooden boats in the harbor and the operational boatyard.

The work in the cafe includes preparing coffee, working at checkout, serving the guests, light cleaning, cleaning tables, and more.

"We are looking for service-minded, flexible employees for part-time positions with a flexible number of hours, distributed over all seven days of the week in line with a shift schedule that can be adapted to the individual employee," the Viking Ship Museum's job post stated.

The job post and application form can be found here.

The Viking Ship Museum hires on an ongoing basis, so people are welcome to send in their applications at any time.

Café Knarr: What you need to know

Café Knarr serves New Nordic Viking food. It has a view of the shipyard and the Viking Ship Museum's many beautiful Viking ships and historic wooden boats.

The café serves food prepared according to the principles of the "New Nordic Vikingfood" - it uses the raw materials that the Vikings knew, so there are no potatoes, tomatoes, or cucumbers - only flatbread, angelica, sea buckthorn, and pearl barley.

"The food connects maritime history and Viking commodities and invites museum visitors to experience the five original Viking ships in new ways. At the same time, the food tells the story of the world and food cultures the Vikings met on their travels to distant places," the Viking Ship Museum states on its website.

Visitors can taste seasonal lunch plates, salads, sandwiches, homemade cakes, hot drinks, organic must, soda, and beer.
