An ancient city from the Viking Age, today Roskilde welcomes a new crowd, especially as host of Roskilde Festival, a popular rock festival in Europe. For four days each year, rock stars invade the small town and perform for international crowds of over 100,000. The rest of the year, Roskilde draws smaller crowds who come to brush up on small-town Danish history in the city's many museums, which focus on specific facets of life in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Viking ship museum, home to original Viking ships discovered at the bottom of a fjord, tops most visitors' itineraries. Find what you're looking for from your Roskilde holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Denmark online trip builder.
