Vikingship museum and Roskilde cathedral + more as Private shore excursion
On this tour I tell the story of how denmark has evolved from way back when we were vikings, over the agricultural background of several hundred years ago, via the industrial cradle in denmark and all the way up to 2013, how we live and who we strive to become in the near future.
You will during this tour visit the Viking ship museum in Roskilde, the Cathedral in Roskilde (where all the royals are buried) We go to the National museum and see the amazing exhibition of not only vikings but all danish.
We pass through some more modern neighbourhoods and se and touch a modern WInd turbine and end up in an almost futuristic neighbourhood, where you can see, what danes are doing to make the world a better place to live.
This tour is perfect for travelers with interest in history and/or interest in spectacular beauty and Royal history.
We start out with a short stop at a little fishermans town of extrem beauty and lots of history and background.
We the roll of to Roskilde where we visit:
Roskilde Cathedral - Unesco Heritage site where I give a guided tour and some you get som own time.
Viking ship Museum, where I give an introduction in the workshop area and the you have some own time to experience exhibition.
We may take a lunch break or if you decide so, find some sandwiches to eat in the car on the way back to Copenhagen.
Back in Copenhagen we visit the National Museum and the Stone age, Iron age, Bronze age and Viking exhibition. This part is basically browsing on your own in your own tempo, but I will be available in the exhibition.
We then end of tour by dropping you of where you want and if needed give you pointers and hints on what to do for the rest of the day.
