Copenhagen Denmark

Photo Feature: Roskilde Cathedral

September 5, 2014

The town of Roskilde, Denmark is best known for its yearly music festival – the kind where everyone camps out in the mud for a week getting filthy and stinky and loving every minute of it. But Roskilde has more to offer: just a half hour train ride from central Copenhagen, Roskilde is an attractive little town with a quaint pedestrian street, a Viking Museum, and best of all, an incredible cathedral. The cathedral was built in the Gothic style in the 12th and 13th centuries, with additional chapels being added through many eras and styles. It has been the mausoleum of the Danish Royal Family since the 16th century and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The cathedral is huge, with several mausoleums and chapels to explore, and is incredibly photogenic. Please enjoy your photo tour of Roskilde Cathedral.



Roskilde is 20-30 minutes from Copenhagen by train, with departures from Central Station every 10 minutes on weekdays. Admission to Roskilde Cathedral is 60 DKK for adults, with free entry for Copenhagen card holders and under-18s. If you find yourself in Copenhagen, take the short trip out to Roskilde and visit the Cathedral, it’s well worth it.
