The 3 big vases that was gifted to Roskilde in 1998 I quite like, but also feel that they could have been placed in a better place. A placement in a green area like the City Park would have been more suitable.

We came across these by accident and were intrigued by their size and the workmanship! The colours in them are beautiful

These terrible misunderstandings have sadly been placed on Hestetorvet (The Horse Square) in front of the train station. We are many citizens, who wish that a bulldozer would take care of them.

We noticed these three large vases when we were on route to the train station. They had graffiti on them but were quite enormous in size. Nothing more than that.

Set of interesting pots near train station. Worth a photo when passing through to see other things. Not worth a special visit.

Adjacent to the train station, these sculptures are something unique and worth a photo op. As another reviewer posted, they are graffitied, but still give the place a certain charm. No real need to go out of your way, just swing by on your to/from...More

We caught the urns (which we'd read about) on our way home when heading back to the train station. Although they are graffitied, the urns are still quite impressive. Additionally, don't miss the cemetery that is right across the way from them. There's a beautiful...More

Stumbled onto a Sunday market here, great for bargains! Good landmark for the railway and bus stations. Look out for the 3 spires of Roskilde Cathedral.
