Our 5 hour tour by car or minibus to Roskilde will include a visit to the National Museum in Copenhagen to see the Viking Exhibition there. We then continue to the old Viking town Roskilde.
There we will visit the Viking Ship Museum and you will be able to watch an introductory film in English. You will see the remains of the five 1000 year old Viking ships found in Roskilde Fjord in 1969 as well as replicas made in recent years.
The Viking Age from 750 to 1050 is a special Scandinavian era. The Vikings were warriors but also farmers and they originated in the three Scandinavian countries Norway, Swede and Denmark. They had a great impact on not just those countries but also many others in Europe. The Vikings introduced Christianity in Denmark and founded our Monarchy.
We start by visiting the National Museum where we will see rune stones and silver treasures and learn about the Nordic Mythology.
Afterwards, we drive to Roskilde for a visit at the Viking Ship Museum. There you can see the remains of the 5 ships found in 1969. On the museum island, it is also possible to see replicas of the ships and see how they were made.
