Roskilde dates back to the Viking Age, and is a popular place to visit for those who want to visit its incredible viking museum or simply walk the streets and see its beautiful Gothic Cathedral. The restaurants in town also offer a delicious way to experience the culture and history of Denmark, so read ahead for our list of the 10 best.
Built in the 1950s, M/S Sagafjord is an old fashioned ferry, that is docked at the Viking Ship Museum. During dinner service, the ship leaves the harbour and sets sail on the Roskilde Fjord, so that passengers can revel in the view of the town and the fjord while simultaneously enjoying a delicious meal. The ship is great for large parties and the food is brought out in pots and pans, and made to be shared with the table.

Situated in City Park, Pipers Hus is located in the greenest part of town while simultaneously offering customers the opportunity to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or cake as they look over the fjord. The menu includes items like roast beef, sautéed fish, and Danish meatballs, as well as several other traditional Danish dishes which are all served by friendly and helpful staff. Piper Hus is a great place to stop with family while walking to the Viking Ship Museum.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
