The dom is nice and has a lot to see and learn. It's almost like a historybook, which one can touch.

Combined with the Viking ship museum, I think that these make for a 5 star destination. Each on its own is still great and likely 4-star. Both are relatively quick and worthwhile, but I don't think I'd do the trip for just one of them....More

Found this place interesting (for a church) so many Kings and Queens laid to rest here. The current queen has a model of her future coffin on display - bit bizarre but it's their way.

It's a beautiful cathedral made of bricks, which you don't see that often in other countries. Even if you're not that interested, it's included in your Copenhagen Card, so make sure to drop by.

This place is a large cathedral and also a large cemetery. More kings buried here than almost anywhere else. Guides will explain the history of the kings buried here. Leave about 30-60 minutes to visit depending upon your interest in the history.

In my opinion this is the most magnificent of all churches in Denmark. It is the burial place of 37 Danish kings and queens and other royals. Some of the sarcophaguses are huge ornate constructions. others are plain and simple. It can be a bit...More

Dear Whiterose. I am surprised that your tour guide did not know what the writing on the Kings Column is, as this is one of Roskilde Cathedrals most popular sites. The kings Column in the chapel of the holy magi has been... More
