This beautiful brick church houses many splendid tombs, a fine gold altar, and an elaborately carved royal balcony. We were fascinated by the stories, some quite scandalous, of the many Danish royals buried here. If you are in the church on the hour, look up...More

It is really worth visiting this Gothic cathedral which houses the burial chapels of many Danish Kings and members of the Royal family. This Unesco World heritage sight is a jewel of a place to visit.

Roskilde Cathedral is a very impressive building inside and out with a very long history. What makes it stand out are all the coffins of members of the Danish Royal family. I have never been in a major church with so many coffins on display!...More

Beautiful cathedral, and the tombs of the Danish monarchs made the visit much more interesting. Combining this with the Viking Ship museum made for a great day-trip from Copenhagen.

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
