Once the capital of Denmark, Roskilde oozes of history and is a must for anyone with a knack for Vikings. With its picturesque location by the fjord and its rich historical heritage, Roskilde is a perfect day trip from Copenhagen only 30 minutes away.

As the only place in the world, you can conquer the waters like a viking aboard a viking ship. The annual Viking Festival is another way to travel back a thousand years. But the ancient city also offers plenty of top-class contemporary culture with its world-renowned music festival, its museum for pop, rock and youth


The magnificent red-brick cathedral with its impressive tall spires is considered one of Denmark’s most important architectural monuments, and it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The present cathedral was probably built in the 1170s by bishop Absalon. Since then, the cathedral has been rebuilt several times and new chapels, embracing various architectural styles, have gradually been added.
