Viking Ship Museum

Warships await you at the Viking Ship Museum. Don't worry, they won't open fire. This museum is dedicated to education about boat building, archaeology and Viking life. It's a favorite among kids, and visitors of all ages can take to the water in traditional vessels. Open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. seven days a week, until 5 p.m. in summer months.

Don’t miss this amazing educational, informational and interactive opportunity to learn everything about Vikings. Ships, ropes, sails, costumes, tools, a boat ride out into the Sea, build your own miniature ship, watch blacksmiths work metal with bellows and anvil. Five authentic ships excavated and saved from the channel. Very nice gift shop. Museum exhibitions and films on the recovery of the five ancient ships. Great for adults, kids, families.

Roskilde Domkirke

The royal burial church of Denmark and a UNESCO world heritage site. Experience a magnificent church and an architectural masterpiece. 1000 Years of Danish history are gathered here under beautifully decorated vaults and in dark crypts. Here 39 kings and queens of Dnemark lie buried. Roskilde Cathedral is just 20 minutes away by train from Copenhagen central station.

A beautiful town to visit and the Cathedral is absolutely dripping in history as it is the resting place of nearly all of Denmark's monarchs. It's a lovely Cathedral - very old but with a lovely atmosphere. Check out the clock when it chimes! Well worth getting on the train and making the visit. Very much struck by the groups of children from 2 1/2 to primary and secondary school children doing tours of the Cathedral learning about their history. Impressive! The screen behind the alter is simply stunning while the Pipe Organ and Pulpit has the date 1609 on the beautiful decorative work on the steps leading up. The Cathedral is absolutely flooded with light which takes away any semblance of a mausoleum. Well worth taking the train to visit.

Andelslandsbyen Nyvang

Reviewed By 430janicep - Ile-de-France, France

We had a very interesting visit, all the volunteers who run this museum are friendly and will answer any questions. There are genuine houses and buildings in their true state of the 40's and very old cars and trucks which have been renovated and drive around the site. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Wheather you’re looking for a quiet stroll, a run or a ride on your mountain bike this place covers the lot. Only a stones throw from the centre of Roskilde it’s within easy access. Take a packed lunch and spend a whole day, the mountain bike routes are also great

Around the museum there is a nice park/plantation area with small lakes and a shelter area and you can stay overnight in your camper.

Reviewed By FrankGeisler - Zurich, Switzerland

We passed this museum by coincidence and decided to step in. A wise decision because we found ourselves in a world of military, sports and support. Unbelievable what the founder has collected from all over the world and especially from Germany (DDR), UK and Eastern Europe. If you love things from the past this is the place to be! There is also a shop where you can buy interesting stuff from the last century. Is this a helpful review? Then please give me a "Thumbs up Thank FrankGeisler" by clicking the button below.
