  • Day456

    Headed west today to check out the cathedral at Roskilde, our first World Heritage site in Denmark. This is a Gothic style brick building from the 13th century, but also the burial place for Danish royalty. It was quite fascinating to wander around each of the individual chapels and tombs, seeing how the styles differed and developed over the centuries. There was even a spot prepared for the current Queen, Margarethe II who's been reigning since 1972. I think she's in good health, but it can't hurt to be prepared I guess!Read more

    8. Etappenziel - Roskilde B&B

    June 11, 2016 in Denmark

    Angekommen, 87,4 km stehen auf dem Tacho.
    Wir sind in einem netten B&B untergekommen, wo wir von der Eigentümerin Pernille Svensson, ebenfalls aktive Radfahrerin und ehemalige Motorradweltumfahrerin, freundlich empfangen werden.
    Es ist ein gemütlicher Hof mit einer Pferdeweide hinter dem Haus.
    Nach der Führung durch die Räumlichkeiten bekommen wir erstmal ein kühles Carlsberg in die Hand gedrückt, dass wir uns im Liegestuhl auf der Terrasse schmecken lassen.
    Später fährt Frank noch mit dem frisch geladenen Pedelec im Turbomodus zum Marmaris-Hühnchen & Pizza-Service um uns mit Abendessen und Tuborg zu versorgen.
    Dann siegt die Müdigkeit.

    Helsingborg - Hillerod - Roskilde

    August 2, 2016 in Denmark

    Journée un peu compliquée... à faire des compromis entre les choses à voir/faire et le temps passé en déplacement. Fin de journée intense à chercher comment se rendre à notre chambre... on y est finalement arrivés avec 3 trains, un autobus, 1 km de marche et un bon samaritain... qui nous a vraiment sorti du trouble! On a quand même eu le temps de voir du pays...

    Viking Ship Museum

    July 3, 2017 in Denmark

    5 excavated ships from about 1,000 CE and an active museum of Viking sailing life. The pictures show a replica ship, a small ship under way with me as sheet man (emphasis on the double e), a black smith (as an exampke of one of mamy crafts) and two of the excavated ships.

  • Day50


    October 5, 2017 in Denmark

    The girls had another great day planned for us. We are off to see the cathedral in Roskilde , and then to see the Viking Museum. But first we have to get Millie off to day care and have a delicious bacon and egg breakfast.

    The Roskilde Cathedral is a very important church for the danish people. 20 kings and 18 queens are buried here. As well as Harold Bluetooth who the Danish designer took the name for the now famous Bluetooth! It looks very modest from the outside, but on the inside there are lots of alcoves coming off the main part of the church. The architecture and decorations are amazing. So much history for the danish people. The present queen has designed her own crypt ready for her funeral, with stone from the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Its a bit of a question at the moment whether her prince will be buried with her or not.

    The girls were fascinated and we had a lovely time reading about all the kings and queens of Denmark. Erik even managed to keep himself under control this time as well although there was just as much gold in this church. Luckily the church closes for lunch at one o'clock or we might still have been there.

    There are some pretty buildings in the area around the Cathedral and we found a nice cafe there for lunch.

    After lunch we were off to the Viking ship museum. They found five Viking ships in the harbour here in the sixties and have reconstructed them like a big jigsaw. All five boat have also been replicated and are anchored in their little harbour! They are on display at the museum along with lots of other relics found in the area.

    There is a rope display where they show you how all the ropes were made, a carving section and a boatbuilding area where they are still making Viking ships there today and Graham tried his hand at carving. Think he's missing the shed!

    Dom zu Roskilde I

    March 5, 2017 in Denmark

    Der Dom zu Roskilde (dänisch: Roskilde Domkirke) der evangelisch-lutherischen Volkskirche Dänemarks ist der erste gotische Dom Skandinaviens aus Backstein. Das in Roskilde auf der dänischen Insel Seeland stehende Gebäude trug somit maßgeblich zur Verbreitung der Backsteingotik bei. Die 1280 fertiggestellte Kirche ist der traditionelle Begräbnisort der dänischen Könige und in neuerer Zeit Touristenmagnet. 1995 nahm die UNESCO den Dom in die Liste des Weltkulturerbes auf.

    Der Eintritt war natürlich in der KopenhagenCard inbegriffen und pro Person gab es noch ein Guidebook kostenlos dazu.
