Very tricky guy. Below 181.5 is impossible. I lean towards around 182. he would edge me my by some mm. 181,8-182,1 imo. Listing is good, could be 1/8 inch lower.
Robbe said on 3/Sep/23

That's too low for Travis. Here he is with 5'9 listed Linus Roache Click Here

Travis is leaning on Roache on the right, and yet hits the 5'11 mark. Rob's listing is pretty accurate i think.
Simon Horwell said on 24/Mar/23
If you see him, Alexander Ludwig and Clive Standen side by side at press conferences or group photos, there is a clear height difference between the three.

Ludwig stands at a solid 6’2” - which is a giant in Hollywood circles.
Standen is about 1.5” shorter, and so around 6’0.5”
Fimmel is about 2.5” shorter than Standen, so about 5’10”., maybe 5’10.5”

Can be clearly seen here: Click Here

He’s definitely not 6’0” or particularly close.

He’s a strong 5’10”-5’10.5” though, which is plenty tall enough to appear 6ft+ on screen.

Hey Rob, how tall do you think Norwegian singer Einar Selvik when you put him next to Travis?

Editor Rob
Can seem about 3.5 inches or so shorter there.
berta said on 26/Oct/21
181,5-183 is possible. I go with the middle strong 182.

Charlie hunnam would edge him

More 181 than 182 I reckon

Looked tallish in Vikings

Either this or 181.5

Raganr deserves being in perfect height range of 511 to 6 same as me😎
abdou. said on 4/Mar/21
google listed hem as 181cm Usually Google increases the height of a person a little, but that does not mean that he is shorter than this height, I think it gave him his true height

6’ range out of bed

Travis look short in the series but very ripped, 180-181 cm
Mark Allan said on 27/Apr/20
Rob, In the horror movie Needle he appeared quite a bit shorter than 6’0.75 John Jarratt maybe a downgrade for him seeing him next to Jarratt I wouldn’t have guessed over 5’10 for Travis
Editor Rob
I have that film somewhere in the house, I'll need to see it.
Animus said on 28/Feb/20

Keep in mind that Fimmel often wears very thin footwear (e.g., slippers) and he doesn't have the best posture. Standen, on the other hand, seems to have strong posture most of the time.

Fimmel is definitely closer to 6'0 than 5'11. He'd edge out someone like DiCaprio under the stadiometer.
Jkiller said on 17/Jan/20
If Clive Standen is 187cm then Travis has to be 181cm max. So yeah just right over 5'11
Animus said on 8/Nov/19

You might say it's a matter of convention whether to use morning or afternoon heights. If we used morning heights, it would just shift the distribution. However, there is a legitimate argument to be made for afternoon heights, namely that it's the height we are throughout most of the day. Therefore, to be considered six feet tall, you should actually be six feet tall throughout most of the day.
Philip S said on 13/Sep/19
I have a question - if Travis is 6' in the morning and a late 5'11" at night, does this make him the latter or the former for official height? Imo if you can *hit* six feet tall, you're basically six feet tall, but I can see some debate in this regard. 5'11 3/4 is so close to 6' it may as well be on the nose, it falls in a very desirable range of height.
Editor Rob
I don't think he would fall to 5ft 11, but maybe 11.5 at worse. A lot of folk in 5ft 11.5-11.75 range afternoon are going to claim 6ft.
Animus said on 21/Aug/19
Recent pictures of him and Luke Bracey confirm he is easily this listing. He's a strong 182cm, anywhere in the 182-182½cm range he'd measure. In real life he is basically a six-footer.
Hijoputamus said on 23/Jun/19
Model agencies always add or retract an inch in some cases but from what people say about this lad and the way he is so humble never trying too hard to look sexy or taller I can believe he must be a real 6 footer
He’s been seen in flip flops at premiers, I mean, who does that? Travis is the REAL real thing because I honestly think Keanu wears lifts and thick soles many times. Travis looks better than anyone out there and seems to not like it very much I’d say
Animus said on 21/Oct/18
@Mad Sam

I agree. He's anywhere from 182-182½cm.
MAD SAM said on 16/Oct/18
He genuinely looks a 182 cm guy I would give him a 6’ if I would meet him but yea 5’11.75” seems a correct listing for him
Leno179 said on 18/May/18
Google puts him as 182 cm now, did he publicaly downgrade his claim or is google now using Celebheights as a source ?(I wish it is both)
Mauro said on 27/Feb/18
What about Thorbjorn Harr (Jarl Borg)??
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 19/Jan/18
I reckon 7/8ths is arguable for him.
Zamasu said on 19/Jan/18
Lmao people arguing about 1 cm, you would not notice even a 5 cm difference unless they were around your height and you knew your height perfectly. 5´11 3/4 give me a break.
Slim 186 said on 11/Dec/17
@Editor rob, how tall do you think he is?
A: 180
B: 181
C: 182
D: 183
E: 184

For me it’s B all the way to D, he’s somewhere between 5’11.5”-6’.
Editor Rob
that range is probably likely, based on what I've seen. Like many celebrities, you can argue a fraction above or below a listing because many people can look within a certain range, sometimes the upper end, sometimes the lower end...
Animus said on 9/Nov/17
Proportionally, he can look no taller than 5'11, but with other people he is closer to 6'0. Around 182cm is fair.
BT said on 9/Sep/17
From what I've seen he looks close enough to 6ft, wouldn't go any lower than 5'11.75.
Finn said on 22/Aug/17
He's about 5'11" or 180cm.
Slim 182 cm said on 9/Aug/17
Sandy, he literally measure mms away from what I'd consider tall..... explains my comment btw. Even if a guys 5'11.9, he's still top average imo. I know it's crazy right?

But I doubt he's height conscious or anything, he probably claims 183.5(his out of bed height) , but technically he's a weak 6 footer, hopefully I'll see him in public.He may be as low as 181.6 and he may be the full 6 foot, it's not as impossible as the visitors below make it out to be...

5'11.5-6' the former is more likely tho...
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jul/17
I just popped over to Travis's page as a guy called Kevin said he knew the man and that he liked his humbleness. I am fond of stories like this, I really am!
Then I noticed the bit of artwork, courtesy of Slim 181 cm....
Very funny! Almost perfect in fact! The colouring needs a bit of tweeking here and there, but the message comes across extremely lucidly!

I'll give this chappie 5ft11.75!

PS 😗 😹😹😹😹😹 😗 (love it!)
kevin said on 26/Jul/17
i know him in person he's just so shy and so humble ♥
Slim 181 cm said on 10/Jul/17
181 is too low for travis, I reckon he'd measure 182.5 (5ft11.85in)cm on a stadiometre. You almost made it travis, almost.👌🏻😗🍁🚬🔥
joe### said on 8/Jul/17
same rage kimmel but he barefoot Click Here
182 is just for he
Slim 181 cm said on 13/Jun/17
yeah I reckon his morning height would be 183.5, and I bet he claims his morning height when asked. It's funny cause some people don't know their height fluctuates and they think they've shrunk!
Animus said on 12/Jun/17
From what I have seen, he consistently looks taller than Alyssa Sutherland. That leads me to believe that he is more of a solid 182cm than a weak one as he can sometimes look. I think the fact that he is quite heavy (~190lb range) and doesn't have the greatest posture can make him look shorter than he is, when he really is nearly 6' tall.
Slim 181 cm said on 11/Jun/17
I'm leading towards 182-183 because he appears 7-8 cm smaller than Gustaf Skarsgard
Animus said on 18/May/17
This is the most he could be, but I wouldn't go below 5'11.5". He is essentially a weak six-footer.
sumdude said on 11/Feb/17
6'1 is way too high, Gary. I think 181-182cm is more accurate. Looks ~6-8cm shorter than ~190cm Alexander Ludwig in pictures.
Gary said on 4/Dec/16
I got my picture taken with him a few months back. He is 100% 6'1, if not slightly more, I was definitely not expecting him to be that tall as he doesn't look it on TV. However remember they are all very tall on Vikings so probably looks deceiving.
Examiner said on 2/Nov/16
Solid 5'11 guy.
Dionisio Rojas said on 30/Oct/16
I remember this guy being listed 1.80 and i think that's his height.
Tiago said on 20/Oct/16
He looks be a typical 5'11 FT to me...
Redwing said on 12/Oct/16
Nah I think hes 1.78-79 cm tall, rob watch a video of him with jimmy fallon he wore barefoot he could be 5'11 though.
_Evie said on 24/Sep/16
Travis is definitely (at least) 6 foot tall. In Vikings he seems even taller. I'd say about 6'1 or a little bit more
what!!!?!!! said on 8/Sep/16
u cant judge a person height just by 1 scene especially in a movie... They do many tricks to make the actors appear taller, like standing on higher ground level, higher boots, lifts or even standing on a box. So travis has that 1.82 height.
Arthur said on 19/Jul/16
Put him as 6 ft flat.
5'6 14 year old boy said on 4/Jul/16
181-183 cm around 6'0 is the obvious height.
Jasper said on 24/Jun/16
If rob Kazinsky is 6ft, travis is definitely 6ft since all the pictures he takes with him he's usually wearing sandals.
Heylo said on 16/Jun/16
Strike me as a guy who hated the pretty boy image and therefor started to downplay his good looks. Doesn't look the tallest on Vikings but his co-actors are just very tall.
Roy said on 10/Jun/16
I just watched Warcraft and Travis did not give off a 6 foot impression throughout the movie. Some scenes looked a little shorter than Dominic Cooper who is listed 5'9.5. I can see maybe 5'11 morning height but the rest of the day around 5'10 range.
Neilsberg said on 9/Jun/16
Hi Rob!
What do you say to this Photo?
In this picture have Robert Kazinsky 6ft 0in(183 cm) and Travis Fimmel.
But Travis Fimmel seems measured taller than Robert Kazinsky, so he is 5ft 11.75in (1.82cm)
especially as Travis wear sandals!

What do you think Rob?

they are very close there, I think on Travis side there might be like a 3 degree tilt.
SoCerebral said on 24/May/16
Alyssa Sutherland is 5'11" and he seems to regularly stand eye to eye with her, so I'd say 5'11" is the most likely answer.
Jerze_123 said on 1/Apr/16
There's a group pic of the cast, and Fimmel is SIGNIFICANTLY shorter than Staden. If Staden is truly 6'2", based on the pic, Fimmel is NO taller than 5'10", on a good day. If u notice, his legs/arms don't look long, and when he stands next to any of the female cast, he's not significantly taller. Moreover, cameras have a way of giving the illusion that the men are always taller than they actually are. Regardless, he's still sexy :) Ludwig and the guy who plays Floki look at least 6'3".

Solid 180,,
Real_Austrian said on 20/Sep/15
Hi Rob thanks for your answers!

I don't know if Fimmel is wearing lifts in the series Vikings or not, but in the series, it often looks that he had almost the same height as Staden or Ludwig.

But if you look for example this Picture, Fimmel is significantly smaller than Staden or Ludwig:

Tom said on 17/Sep/15
Yeah rob your probably right, I don't think travis wears lifts in vikings. I would say he probably is a tall enough guy to not wear lifts.
Real_Austrian said on 17/Sep/15
Hey Rob,

on this Photo you can see which shoes they wear.

Click Here
Editor Rob
yeah they look like Vans, although Blagden's shoes look a little less than an inch, so wouldn't say more than 1/4 inch difference.
RealAustrian said on 16/Sep/15

Travis Fimmel do not look really tallen than George Blagden.

By the way this website is very cool!
Tom said on 15/Sep/15
So rob you don't think fimmel isn't a guy that would where lifts, than how do you know about other actors like tom cruise, etc
Editor Rob
I don't think so, he seems a guy who has no problem wearing sandals, but on Vikings I can't think he'd be in lifts.
Real_Austrian said on 15/Sep/15
Hi Rob!

On this Photo (Click Here) Travis Fimmel does not look taller than George Blagden.

What do you mean?
Editor Rob
I think he does look near 2 inches taller, he may also have sandals on that day, or thinner footwear than george.
Tom said on 13/Sep/15
Hey rob do you think travis where's lifts on Viking show?
Editor Rob
I would doubt it!
Tom said on 10/Sep/15
Hey rob, do you know anything if travis is coming to a con never you soon. I really would like to know how tall he really is?
Editor Rob
I don't know if he will.
Alice said on 14/Aug/15
Travis Fimmel is 6'1".
Tom said on 28/Jun/15
Rob how much do You think fimmel weighs. Does about 200 pounds sound right
Editor Rob
that sounds a believable, he has a bit of muscle to him for the role
Pallin 92 said on 26/Jun/15
If Gustaf skarsgard is 6'4 . There is no way in hell that Travis fimmel is under 6 feet.
Tom said on 2/Jun/15
Rob do you know when Travis is going to a con near you. Or you have no clue. Because Vikings do there show in Ireland so I would say he is bound to do one sooner or later.
Editor Rob
no idea, I always try to mention names like this to UK organisers, but a lot of the time they don't seem to want to get guests.
One organiser (who I couldn't go to) did get some Viking guest, so it's not impossible...
Tom said on 17/May/15
Rob I really didn't understand your answer, so when you list people on your site it is there low height, or do you just list the height they would be in the afternoon?
Editor Rob
some people are at their low by 1pm, others may still shrink another fraction...
I'm thinking of an afternoon height which is near enough your evening anyway...but for some people there could still be a fraction difference.
Tom said on 16/May/15
Rob all the heights that you list on your site are the complete low height right, so why isn't fimmel at five foot eleven and a half if he goes down to that height in the evening???
Editor Rob
it's ok to say afternoon or evening, I think that typically covers a 1/4 inch or so.
Tom said on 12/May/15
Hey rob what do you think travis fimmel low height is, because in vikings he probably does a lot of fighting stuff and movement etc. my guess mybe five foot eleven and a half.
Editor Rob
after a hard day on set he probably could measure that.
joe 193cm night said on 9/May/15
Alexander Ludwig is 6´2.5 between 6´2.75
Tom said on 3/May/15
Rob why did you change your mind into putting travis at 5 foot 11.75. Instead a 6 feet?????
Editor Rob
I felt from watching him more it might be nearer the mark.
ManKo said on 23/Apr/15
I dont think Clive Standen is 6'2 or 188cm barefeet.Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn) is an strong 6'2 and is about an inch taller than him.

clive standen 6´2(188)Click Here
MD said on 20/Apr/15
@hijopute, you're completely right. He was listed at 180cm during his modeling years, and fairly consistently so. It says something he was listed at that by his agencies, when 5'11" guys are often given 6'0" or 6'1" listings.
Tom said on 17/Apr/15
Rob who do you think is taller travis fimmel or kristopher Hivju??. Also that would be awesome to see hivju in vikings, that would be sick.
Editor Rob
both could be in the same range, a little bit shy of full 6 foot.
MD said on 16/Apr/15
Here he is with 6'2.5" Alexander Ludwick (far right):

Click Here

If Alex stood up straight - and there are other pictures of them together, though, Alex is a bit closer to the camera which distorts height - that's more than just two inches.
MrBoots said on 13/Apr/15
He's a solid 6 footer, he looks about an inch taller than Donal Logue and Gabriel Byrne. He just looks average because the show is full of 6'2"+ dudes.
J said on 23/Mar/15
@ Steve

I would have thought at least 191cm for Ben Robson.
Tom said on 15/Mar/15
Hey rob how tall do you think ben robson is in vikings? He plays kalf in vikings. He's not on your site so I was wondering how tall do you think he is???
Editor Rob
looks tall, but not really sure on him. First thought was 6ft 4.
Tom said on 1/Mar/15
Hey rob do you think he is solid 6 feet tall or weak 6 feet, he probably dips into five foot eleven in the afternoon???????
Editor Rob
a 182 is possible
Fern194cm-192cm said on 20/Feb/15
Cricket, Model heights for both men and women are just as determining as their looks. My friend male modeled and was 5,10.5 and they told him he could never take it to the next level unless he grew 3 inches. Most men are actually downgraded. Like schenkenburg and Noah Mills to be 6,2 even though they are taller. This is true of the Women as well such as Karlie Kloss. All top models are legit tall and not just runway models but print and campaigns. I think they are pushing for even taller people in the industry. some of these top girls are like 6,1 or 6,2 barefoot which is insane..
J said on 20/Feb/15
I think 182 looks right for him. He's relatively tall but most of his Vikings costars are quite tall, so he looks more average. I think 180-182 range is what he can look, maybe a weak six foot.
Tom said on 15/Feb/15
Hey rob do you think it's possible he can be 5 foot 11 and a half
Editor Rob
he can look like that at times.
Dionisio Rojas said on 27/Jan/15
I believe this guy is a solid 1.80 mts. no more!.
Johnny said on 14/Jan/15
Do you think he could be 5'11 range rob? Because a lot of his costars look quite a bit taller than him. On the show Vikings, his wife appears to be his height too, and she is a known model who is 180. So, what do you guys think?
Klay said on 4/Jan/15
Looks 5'11.25
your friend said on 11/Jun/14
A definite 5'11 tops.
Banshee said on 24/Apr/14
According to the official fashion guidelines, the runway male models are within 6'0-6'2.
With regards to Fimmel, he doesn't look taller than 5'11 in "Vikings" next to his, mostly, taller colleagues.
Cricket said on 15/Apr/14
Fimmel is listed at 5'11" and Model heights are often over listed or rounded up. Meaning he's probably 5''11". Which is how tall he looks. Model heights also don't matter that much, only runway models have to be tall. Also there are no minimum heights for models.
Charlie said on 14/Apr/14
Feeling short and lonely "Bundy"?
You can clearly see that Fimmel is over 180 cm, he is not only an actor but a MODEL, the minimi height for a model is 180 cm and Fimmel is problably 181-182 cm.
Sean said on 12/Apr/14
Have to agree with Bundy a little. I honestly think he's maybe more like 5'11.5" or a weak 6ft. Need a pic of him and Swayze
Bundy said on 11/Apr/14
I've seen Fimmel listed at 5'11" on some of the agency sites, so he is definitely shorter then 6'. He looked the same height as the Swayze on "The Beast" and in premiere photos with Swayze, who was probably 5'10" at this point in his life. Fimmel is 5'10.5" max, he's nothing close to 6'.
Mike said on 27/Mar/14
I think Swayze was made to look almost the same height as Fimmel in "The Beast". It's a shame his last acting role wasn't in a better series.
John said on 25/Mar/14
Watching Vikings, I actually think he looks more or less a 6ft guy. Anything under 182 is just too low, as he looks 6ft next to 188 Clive Standen. For the record, I think calling 182 '6ft' is just fine, anything around half an inch is fair.
Sean said on 22/Mar/14
He was regularly listed at 5'11 or 180cm in his modelling days (they usually round up too so suprised they didn't put 6') I will look for pictures but in Beast with Patrick Swayze he looked only an inch or so taller. I trust Rob's listings just he does seem under 6ft...
Arch Stanton said on 19/Mar/14
Chris says on 18/Mar/14
Contrary to you guys, he's not really my type, so i don't care what style suits him best. Go at it girls nonetheless. But i think he's a weak 6 ft.

I'd be more suspicious of a guy who feels he has to assert himself like you did here Chris who makes a big thing of it. This guy has had a major image change and looks radically different to what he used to. It's worthy of comment. Does it make any of us a fag for thinking this isn't a good look for him? Absolutely not. Get over it.
Chris said on 18/Mar/14

Erik said on 17/Mar/14
None of you seem to realize this look is for his role in the tv-series "Vikings". Pretty authentic look if you ask me.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Mar/14
Click Here Look better there with the Hemsworth type of cut. If he cleaned shaved off the beard and tash down to a Brad Pitt sort of stubby goatee there he'd look a lot better put it that way. He's not really a guy who pulls off a full beard well.
MD said on 13/Mar/14
I'd say that on the extremes of what he's looked, this is probably a better look for him. That said, there is a way to look tougher and more masculine without looking so haggard/rough. This is almost like letting yourself go. He honestly looks about fix or six years older than he actually is, to me.
MarcusTheSwede said on 11/Mar/14
What what what he looks like....Charlie Hunam..cant believe it..he used to look like a swimsuit posterboy calvin klein this better though..not like like but u know..looks bad ass
Fern194cm-192cm said on 11/Mar/14
He is still very good looking. I think what makes him look so different from his model days is the three things:
1. the new hair cut instead of the long pretty boy mane.
2. he has definitely gained weight whether it be bulk from muscle or fat. As a consequence, his sharp model features (jawline, high sharp cheekbones, etc.) are less noticeable.
3. He dresses like someone else at comic con would.. Get it?
MD said on 11/Mar/14
Wow, he's almost unrecognizeable.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Mar/14
He used to be pretty girly looking. I wonder if it ever bugged him and explains the radical change in appearance. He definitely looks like he's trying to look as rough as possible! 6ft looks about right.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Mar/14
Good grief, this was the guy who was on billboards in every major city in the late 1990s right? He's changed radically, looks like a Texan redneck now!!
