Venture into the Danish countryside to experience the authentic Denmark


South of Copenhagen, two of Denmark's most interesting cities are located - Roskilde and Køge.

Roskilde is often referred to as Denmark's old Viking capital, but is today a modern and industrious city with a charming pedestrian street and good shopping possibilities. The city is home to Roskilde Cathedral, burial place for the Danish monarchs since the 16th century, as well as the Viking Ship Museum which houses the best preserved Viking Ships in Denmark.

Køge is one of Denmark's finest examples of a Medieval village. Located in the Køge Bay, the city still has the largest number of well-preserved half-timbered houses of any Danish village, but is also a city in progress with modern architecture and an lively harbour area which makes it a good mix of new and old.
