Visiting the town
Wander through Roskilde’s small medieval streets to experience the atmosphere, green parks and churchyards. Visit Roskilde Cathedral, the Viking Ship Museum, Roskilde Museum and the many other museums, churches and monasteries that present the city’s culture and history. Enjoy a cup of coffee at one of the city’s many cafés or visit the market to shop for local foods.
Or take a beautiful walk overlooking the fjord from the cathedral, through the City Park and to the Viking Ship Museum, where reconstructions of Viking ships rock gently along the quayside.
With its small, narrow streets and old, thatched fishermen’s cottages St Jørgensbjerg is worth a visit. Stop at St Jørgensbjerg Church, which is one of Denmark’s oldest stone churches, or visit the studio of artist L.A. Ring.
