Copenhagen Shore Excursion
This full day shore excursion visits the city of Vikings, Roskilde, where you will learn about an exciting time in the region's history, which dates back over 1000 years. Highlights include the Viking Ship Museum and Roskilde Cathedral.
Upon arrival in Roskilde, your first stop is the Viking Ship Museum which is the Danish National Museum for ships and boat building from prehistoric and medieval times. In the early 11th century, five Viking ships were purposely sunk in the Roskilde Fjord to protect Roskilde from an enemy attack by sea. These ships were excavated in 1962 and it was learned that they were five different types of ships ranging from cargo ships to war ships. The museum was built overlooking the fjord and on your tour you will enjoy reconstructions of these original ships.
After a break for you to enjoy lunch on your own, you will visit the Roskilde Cathedral, which sits on top of a fill and offers wonderful views over the fjords. The cathedral was begun in the 12th century and it was the first Gothic cathedral to be built of brick. Its construction later encouraged this style in much of northern Europe. The impressive twin spires dominate the skyline of the town. Inside the church is the resting place of Danish monarchs since the 15th century. In 1995 the cathedral was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It continues to be one of the largest cathedrals in Denmark and of course a top attraction in Roskilde.
Later this afternoon you return to the pier in Copenhagen.
This tour includes a Driver Guide who provides commentary in the vehicle, however the museum is a self-guided tour. Should you wish to have a licensed guide join you in the museum, please contact us for a quote.
