We learned a lot of Danish history while on our tour of the Roskilde Cathedral were prior Kong’s and queens are buried. A pretty cathedral.

This is a large building, but typical of Scandinavian cathedrals, its decor is simplicity itself yet it retains the aura of a place of worship. It is interesting to see the tombs of the various monarchs buried there, most of which, again, are simple.

Roskilde was a really nice day trip from Copenhagen and a change of pace. The cathedral was excellent with plenty of info in English available.

We were a small group of Americans and we had arranged to have a guide. For one hour we were taken around the cathedral and special things were pointed out to us. Of course, the altar piece in relief from around 1560 was elaborate. I...More

The clock strikes on the hour and there is a movement where St George kills the dragon and then strikes the hour. Enjoyed the visit - lots of good information about the Christian’s and Frederick’s.

Interesting architecture and tombs of Danish kings and queens. Popped in for a quick look and spent well over an hour wandering around this impressive cathedral. The organ music added to the atmosphere.

Our visit to the Roskilde Church was very memorable. The Church is beautiful and supposedly the burial site for the Danish Royalty. It’s a nice place to visit if you are in Roskilde and I’m sure the kids too will enjoy visiting it.
