ROSKILDE DOMKIRKE

Denmark’s most beloved cathedral, this stunning place of worship is a municipal landmark with twin brick towers. Many kings have been buried here, and it displays 850 years of Danish architectural styles.

The cathedral, which Bishop Absalon ordered to be built in the 12th century, has undergone several renovations throughout the ages and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It served as the last resting place for Danish kings, and it’s believed that the Viking king Harald I (Bluetooth), who lived in the 10th century, is buried within one of the columns next to the main altar. In the summer, the cathedral hosts free music on Thursday nights.
