In the middle of Roskilde harbour lies one of the country’s newest Danhostel: Danhostel Roskilde. Combine your stay with a visit to the nearby Viking Ship Museum. Roll history backwards by dressing the youngest members of the family in Viking costumes, and learn fantastic stories about the past.

Roskilde Cathedral

When you’ve had enough of the Viking blood in your veins, turn your nose towards the centre of the town.  Roskilde Cathedral, the burial place for many Danish monarchs - 21 kings and 18 queens - was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, so it is definitely worth a visit.  The town centre has plenty of galleries and cosy cafes.

Roskilde Festival and the Tour Boat, Sagafjord

A huge attraction during the summer months is Roskilde Music Festival, held each year at Dyrskuepladsen. Enjoy the music and the atmosphere.  Take a tour on the restaurant boat, Sagafjord, which sails in the beautiful Roskilde Fjord. Sagafjord docks only 100 m from the front door of Danhostel Roskilde.  

Near to Copenhagen

It is easy to combine your stay with a tour of Copenhagen.  The trip from Danhostel Roskilde to Roskilde train station takes about 15 minutes.  There are several departures to Copenhagen each hour from Roskilde train station.  The journey takes about an hour.
