The cathedral has been the main burial site for Danish monarchs since the 15th century. It has numerous tombs of the royals buried in the last 500 years. This is a nice church but it is not extravagant in any sense. It was an enjoyable...More

A must visit when a tourist in Roskilde. Either take the audio guide or book a guided tour. Either way you won’t regret it. If attending with kids, they should be around 4 years old and above.

It's short train ride from Copenhagen. The church itself is beautiful, especially in autumn with red leaves clawing the wall. This church is a royal tomb, so marvelous coffins lying all over in the church. The 3 sisters of Mermaid are also inside this cathedral.

Before going inside, Klaus, our driver/guide, told us about how the Cathedral obtained the magnificently-carved golden altar piece that can be seen from the front and back. When the toll takers asked the value of the altar piece, the Belgians valued it very low to...More

The cathedral is a short train ride away from Copenhagen. After a short stroll through the little charming town you reach the gothic cathedral. Tombs of many danish royalties can be found inside and it is worthwhile to climb up to the second floor as...More

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.
