Stopped by in Roskilde on the way back from the Viking ship museum and spent an enjoyable hour wandering around looking at the royal tombs in the cathedral. Harald Bluetooth has a fresco but no big memorial or known tomb if you’re looking.

If you have some time in Roskilde it is worth seeing but it was not the most grand or interesting church, and the guide book is very confusing to follow as you make your way around the church.

If interested in Danish history and Royalties, this is an unmissable site. No other church in Denmark carries more history than roskilde cathedral

This cathedral was worth visiting for. It was magnificent and epic Place to be. I can really understand why this building is in the Unesco world heritage list.

Definitely worth seeing. I nearly skipped over it. As far as old churches go, they all have an elegance that is seldom replicated these days. However the one thing that separates this cathedral from the others is the number of dead royal family coffins. There...More

The burial place of the Danish royal family, a collection of chapels running through the centuries, including one in preparation for the current queen. Very interesting metalwork and some wall-paintings, mechanical clock which moves on the hour.

I suggest you do both the Viking Ship Museum and the Cathedral as a day trip from Copenhagen. The Cathedral was very interesting, we visited it after our visit to the Viking Ship Museum. We spent about 90 minutes and then walked over to downtown...More

What a magnificent building with 1,000 years of history. A UNESCO recognized site that took over 100 years to build. The nave and pulpit are magnificent. The pipe organ is one of the finest in all of Denmark and parts of the organ are dated...More
