Roskilde Domkirke information
Lonely Planet review
Denmark’s most amazing cathedral is Roskilde Domkirke , a designated Unesco World Heritage Site. It dates back to the 12th century, but has been added to so many times that it’s now a superb showcase of 800 years’ worth of Danish architecture. As the royal mausoleum, it contains the crypts of 37 Danish kings and queens – contemplating the bones of so many powerful historical figures is a moving memento mori. No fewer than 11 spectacular chapels and crypts sprout from the main body of the cathedral. No doubt every visitor will have their favourite: here are ours.
