Scandic Roskilde is located by Roskilde Ringen Park, just 5 minutes’ drive from central Roskilde. It offers Nordic-style rooms with French balconies and free Wi-Fi. Booked at last minute (literally last minute) because let down by the hotel I had prebooked. Staff super helpful and sent a taxi for me. I was charged incorrectly but this was dealt with courteously and efficiently by eamil afterwards.

Roskilde is a walking city in which you can visit the Viking Ship Museum and Cathedral very easily in one day without feeling rushed. As well, there are numerous good restaurants and shopping available. Enjoyed doing our own self guided walking tour. With the city celebrating its 1,000 year Anniversary there are many highlights from the Middle Ages to view.
Roskilde is a charming town, full of character and history. The cathedral was lovely, the red brick interior making it very distinctive from the cathedrals we have seen elsewhere in Europe. The harbor area was charming, highlighted by the Viking Ship Museum, which features five boats recovered from the floor of the fjord, where they had been scuttled as a protective barrier almost a thousand years ago. We had several very good meals in a couple of the restaurants around the main square, as well as some of the best hot dogs we've ever eaten (from the food stand on the square). The people were all very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful stay!
The impressive cathedral, the interesting viking mueseum and last but not least a number of excellent restaurants (better than Copenhagen IMO: "Upstairs" and "Rådhuskælderen"... what's not to like ?
Roskilde has a vibrant history that is still evident today - particularly related to the Vikings, the Danish royal family and 20-21st century music festivals. Roskilde harbour area has been transformed into an investigative archaeological museum with lots of Viking artefacts and artisans work-areas for the old Viking crafts. Chief among them is a boat building yard that creates replica Viking long-ships using the tools and methods of the Viking era. The museum has an original Viking long-ship that was recovered from the sea bed, along with many Viking finds and hoards. The museum harbour has over a dozen replica Viking craft of different designs, with regular sailings on the Roskilde fjord, and a long-ship cruise to Ireland with an active participating crew - that you can sign-up for, if you are interested. A dinner cruise also operates from the quay on the old M/S Sagafjord restaurant ship, with its teak deck and polished brass-work. In the old town centre is the Gothic Roskilde Cathedral - the most important church in Denmark, as it is the last resting place of the Danish monarchs and royal family since the 15th Century, and the oldest parts date to the 13th century. Around the cathedral are some interesting and important structures including the Yellow Palace built for the Royal family in the 1730's, the 19C town hall and the market place that has been used since the 12th Century. There is a good selections of shopping, restaurants and bars in Roskilde, and the market is worth a browse, including second hand and antique stalls, side by side with fruit and vegetables from local growers. Behind the harbour is a very pretty area with properties dating back to the late Viking and middle ages, with very exclusive positions close to the harbour. There is lots to see and do in Roskilde, and more just outside the town. Well worth a long weekend break, or several visits.
The museum and ship replica section are outstanding. We had two exceptional guides who spoke clearly, confidently and informatively. The town itself was worth a walk through and the lovely section of thatched houses to the left of the hostel was also great to wander through.
We visited the Viking ship museum and spent a long time looking at the exhibits, doing hands on activities and getting into Viking warships - we could have even sailed in one! Roskilde itself is easy to walk around and to navigate with the church being the centre point. Lovely shops and cafes to have a look around.
