Roskilde: Vikings, History & Heritage
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 travel back a thousand years and conquer the waters aboard a viking ship. 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 culture and much more.
