Kings and Vikings Roskilde – Two UNESCO Heritage Sites

Full Day Tour (6 hours)


We leave Copenhagen for a day trip and travel west to the town of Roskilde, former Danish capital, and once-bustling hub of the Vikings. The city of Roskilde has been founded by the Danish Viking king Harold Bluetooth. Roskilde Cathedral is built on the same spot as old king Harold’s church and alleged burial place, and this cathedral has been the burial place of the kings and queens of Denmark for over 600 years – a tradition still upheld today.

On this tour you get close to both the ancient Viking culture and Danish royal history from the 10th to the 21st century. You will experience the colorful past of the Danes through two magnificent heritage sights. Visit the Viking Ship Museum, where you can see five authentic Viking vessels which were recovered from the seabed of Roskilde Fjord, as well as working reconstructions of the ships. Watch craftsmen at work and enjoy a Viking-inspired lunch in the museum cafe. Finally, explore the impressive and beautiful Roskilde Cathedral, a UNESCO Heritage site and burial place of 39 Danish kings and queens. If time allows, take a walk in the pedestrian shopping area, and introduce guests to the town before returning to Copenhagen.
