|Vikingeklubben Jomsborg is a winter bathing club. Our season runs from September 1st till we close down for summer on May 31st.
In the current season calendar, you can see all of our very popular social events that, in addition to ocean bathing and enjoying the sauna, contribute to the great atmosphere of our club.
The season begins with standerhejsning (where we raise the flag) and a welcome party in September where we enjoy seeing all the old members again and welcome the new members. Other parties during the season are the Christmas Party in December and the end-of-season celebration in May.
All parties are held at the ocean bath and demand member participation in form of entertainment, tending the bar, cleaning etc.
At full moon the bar is open and the gildemagere have fresh supplies and maybe a few surprises on the program. If the weather allows it, the bathing pier is lighted up only by candle lights.
A full moon event always has a program – a vernissage, a lecture or presentation, music or something else. Usually it’s possible to buy homemade soup from the kitchen in the club house.
You don’t have to sign up for the events, just show up and enjoy the ambience. Remember to keep an eye on the noticeboard where all events are announced.
If you want to contribute with a non-commercial, non-religious, and non-political feature at about an hours duration, please send a description to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the gildemagere.
Sometimes the gildemagere open the bar extraordinarily. This happens on selected Fridays from 4 pm to 7 pm. There is great beer on tap and other delicious drinks in stock. Maybe also a small surprise. Remember to look at the noticeboard and www.vinterbadning.dk where Friday Bar will be announced.
New Year’s Thrill on December 31st
New Year at Jomsborg – at exactly 12 noon we jump into the waves and wish each other a happy new year. The bar offers lovely bubbles and gorgeous kransekage at New Year prices.
We meet on the beach 15 minutes before and prepare for The Great New Year’s Thrill.
The general meeting is held in May and gathers about 400 people.
Among our members we find a lot of creative and artistic people who want to show what they are working with. During the season we hold vernissages and you can enjoy the artwork at our little “gallery” in the club house at the ocean bath.
All exhibitions are opened with a vernissage as part of a full moon event.
Children and guests
At all parties members’ children (under 15) are welcome to participate. Guests are not allowed at Jomsborg’s events.
