Museums Sightseeing Wildlife Areas
An ancient city from the Viking Age, today Roskilde welcomes a new crowd, especially as host of Roskilde Festival, a popular rock festival in Europe. For four days each year, rock stars invade the small town and perform for international crowds of over 100,000. The rest of the year, Roskilde draws smaller crowds who come to brush up on small-town Danish history in the city's many museums, which focus on specific facets of life in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Viking ship museum, home to original Viking ships discovered at the bottom of a fjord, tops most visitors' itineraries. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Roskilde and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Roskilde

Tailor your Roskilde vacation by choosing a hotel, hostel, or bed and breakfast near any of the city's major attractions. If you are in town specifically to explore its Viking heritage, stay along the harbor directly adjacent to the Viking museum. To take in the historical old town, pick from a number of options, including Denmark's oldest hotel. If you've come for the famous Roskilde Festival, you'll want to stay close to the fairgrounds. Scenic hotels or peaceful campgrounds along the the Roskilde Fjord, just a five-minute drive from the city center, offer a quiet alternative to city activity.
