You'll trip over history at every turn when exploring the ancient viking city and former capital of Denmark. But the hilly city by the scenic fjord has much more on the menu. We've collected a couple of must-dos.
Majestically located on the city's peak, the gothic Roskilde Cathedral overlooks the city and the fjord.
As the only place in the world, Roskilde Fjord is the scene, if you're dreaming about setting sail and jumping aboard a real Viking ship.
The restaurant ship M/S Sagafjord lets you take in your lunch, coffee or dinner with perfect vistas. Departs from Roskilde Harbour, right next to The Viking Ship Museum.
Roskilde is much more than vikings and is home to one of Europe's biggest music festival which each year draws hundreds of music lovers and party people from all over.
Walk along the fjords in the national park Skjoldungernes Land just west of the city.
Head for the brand new and spectacular museum RAGNAROCK which showcases national, historic and contemporary museum and youth culture.
The Viking Ship Museum is located right by the shore and boasts five ships, activities for young and old, exhibitions and 1,000 years of history.
Especially the cobblestone streets near the cathedral will take you back to medieval times.
Great adventures await not far outside of Copenhagen's city limit.
