Roskilde Cathedral. Let the kings and queens of Denmark take you on a journey through 800 years of history, from Viking kings to Gothic architecture across the Reformation up until the finished funeral monument for Denmark’s current queen Margrethe II. Hear the dragon squeal, descend into dark crypts and find peace under the vaulted ceilings. The architecture of the Cathedral makes it a World Heritage Site, just 25 minutes by train from Copenhagen Central Station. The Cathedral is located in Roskilde, famous for its music festival. The 1000 year old city is a must-see for anyone with an interest in history, architecture and Vikings. With its picturesque location by the fjord and its rich historical heritage, Roskilde is a perfect day trip from Copenhagen.
