Owner description: The royal burial church of Denmark and a UNESCO world heritage site. Experience a magnificent church and an architectural masterpiece. 1000 Years of Danish history are gathered here under beautifully decorated vaults and in dark crypts. Here 39 kings and queens of Dnemark lie buried. Roskilde Cathedral is just 20 minutes away by train from Copenhagen central station.

We first visited this church on a gloomy day in November, when it was dark, or almost so, outside. That produced a wonderful atmosphere, which was still apparent on a bright sunny day in June, with many more visitors about. This is simply a wonderful church. The range of styles in the royal tombs takes ages to see and appreciate, while the little museum is also full of interest. There are some nice misericords (not pointed out in the guide book) and dignified architecture and monuments. Take time here, it will repay you.

When i Roskilde, you cant oversee the church. Take a Walk around the church, and maybe look inside.
Very peacefull inside.

Roskilde Domkirke is a must-see if you are in the area. Many kings and queens of Denmark have been buried here, and it is full of rich history. It is incredibly peaceful and beautiful inside. There is a quite a good little museum inside as well. You receive a free guide when you enter to help decipher who is buried in each chapel.

It was marvellous to be able to understand the history of Denmark through the visit to the mammoth Cathedral. Fantastic experience and an amazing walk into the past knowing that this was the resting place for 39 kings and queens of Denmark.

This was a fascinating experience; seeing the graves and gravestones of many of the Danish monarchy over the centuries, seeing the hole they are currently working on for the current queen and her consort (a bit creepy really), as well as the lovely architecture of the building, was really worthwhile.
