Thanks to its namesake rock and pop festival that booms on the fields to the south of Roskilde each year in June and July, this Zealand city has become almost synonymous with hedonism. However, even if you don’t head in to pitch the tent and party, Roskilde has plenty on the menu. For one, the town boasts an uber-long history that has its roots in the pagan age of the Vikings, while the old quarter at the heart of the city comes adorned with one seriously gorgeous UNESCO cathedral, the ochre facades of the Roskilde Palace, the acclaimed Viking Ship Museum on the edge of the Roskilde Fjord, a clutch of haunting stone churches from the Middle Ages and a welcoming population of students that ebbs and flows with the local university’s terms.
