Bespoke walking and running routes
Is the freedom to incorporate nature into your daily exercise high on your list of priorities? Then join us on a walking/running route and explore the hotel’s nature surroundings. We’ve created three different digital running routes and added them to the RunGo app, which uses turn-by-turn navigation to show you which route to run, the remaining distance and which roads or paths you should take. Just like a car’s GPS system.

The shorter three-kilometre route is also recommended as a walk-and-talk route for a healthy break during a meeting or seminar. RunGo is free and available for iOS and Android – for both smartphone and Apple Watch.

Enjoy a refreshing dip or a walk through the charming Vigen beach park with beautiful views of the Fjord, where both Viking ships and the dining ship Sagafjord sail side-by-side with sleek sailboats. Strandparken is located just 15 minutes’ walk from the hotel. If you enjoy lake swimming, we recommend the fantastic nature and bathing area by the opal-blue bathing lakes Himmelsøen and Lynghøjsøen, which are only 8-10 km from the hotel. 

Summer calls for ice cream and you’ll find plenty of options close to the hotel. The closest is the ice cream kiosk at Vigen Campingplads. However, we recommend a visit to Roskilde Harbour (3.5 km from the hotel), where you’ll find Paradis Is and Havnekiosken, both of which serve mouthwatering ice cream and waffle cones. Pssst… Michelle at reception recommends the elderflower sorbet from Paradis Is – it’s just heavenly.

If you enjoy a stroll that includes a little browsing, a visit to Skomagergade – one of the city's charming old shopping streets – is a must. Here, just 4 km from the hotel, you will find a wealth of small, charming shops and eateries. If you prefer indoor shopping, you can visit the Ro’s Torv shopping centre, just a 10-minute drive from the hotel. 

The stunning Boserup Forest, 10 km from the hotel, is a beautiful place for a walk or a bike ride.  The forest is protected and is located next to Roskilde Fjord, so take the opportunity to swim or dip your toes in the fjord while you’re here. More locally, the Himmelev forest is only 20 minutes’ walk from the hotel. The forest is a relatively new landscaped forest, but it’s definitely worth a nice walk to see. 

“Pick your own strawberries” is our Chef Rasmus' personal recommendation for a summer activity in Roskilde. There are many options near the hotel, so feel free to ask at reception. We can also recommend the vintage car meet every Thursday at the harbour, Roskilde market days every Wednesday and Saturday, or a visit to one of the many farm shops in the area with everything from eggs to fruit and vegetables.

You will find a wealth of cultural and historical sights in Roskilde. Most famous are Roskilde Cathedral and the Viking Ship Museum. The area also offers many other interesting attractions such as Roskilde Abbey, Sct. Hans Have, the Musicon area housing among other things the Ragnarock Museum and “container alley”, or the Experience Harbour. A local tip – within walking distance of the hotel is the National Park Skjoldungernes Land, which boasts unique nature, cultural history and some of the most beautiful landscapes in Denmark. 

Slow down and enjoy a picnic in the beautiful Danish nature surrounding the hotel. We will be happy to make you a packed lunch to take along with you. Borrow our bikes and get out into the Danish countryside this summer. There is a wide variety of delightful picnic spots near the hotel. We can recommend Vigen beach park, Byparken, Folkeparken, Kællinge Haven, Boserup Skov, Lynghøjsøerne or Himmelsøen. 

When you stay at Comwell Roskilde, you are never far from some of Denmark's finest golf courses. We can recommend Ledreborg and Hedeland golf courses, among others.



Roskilde Cathedral and the royal tombs
Roskilde Cathedral is considered one of the most important church buildings in Denmark and one of the most important monuments in general, due to its unique architecture and its connection to Danish history. The cathedral was built during the 12th and 13th centuries as the first brick-built, Gothic-style cathedral in Scandinavia, but today it reflects 800 years of changing architectural styles. The cathedral has been the royal family's burial church for centuries and contains 38-40 royal tombs: 19-21 kings and 19 queens. Alongside frescoes and art, they tell the story of the kings and queens, the Danish church and Denmark over a thousand years. The cathedral was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995.

Sagafjord boat tour
Experience the idyllic Zealand landscape with hills, fields, church spires, blue waves, birds and high skies from the water when you board the old ship Sagafjord, which sails from the harbour in Roskilde.

The Viking Ship Museum
The Viking Ship Museum is Denmark’s national museum for ships, seafaring and boatbuilding culture from the Viking Age through to the Middle Ages. Through exhibitions, research and experimental archaeology, the museum seeks to create a living and modern museum that makes our maritime history interesting and relevant to visitors today.

Roskilde Museum
Roskilde Museum is a local cultural history museum about Roskilde and the surrounding area. The museum tells the story of the city of Roskilde and the surrounding area through exhibitions featuring rich finds from local history. 

Ragnarock's 1,200 m2 main exhibition space consists of 11 themes that present the story of how music and youth have pushed boundaries and influenced society over the years. Take part in a captivating journey through the history and development of music and youth from the 1950s onwards – a journey that engages, activates and makes you sweat.

Musicon is a new creative district in Roskilde. The development covers an area of 250,000 square metres. Before 1900, the area was used as agricultural land. In the twentieth century, gravel began to be dug here and around 1940, the first concrete factory was established in the area. As late as 2001, concrete elements were still being manufactured here for projects including the Great Belt Bridge and the Øresund Bridge.

Hedeland Vintage Railway
Denmark’s longest narrow-gauge vintage railway, with a length of 5 km and 8 stops along the way. The train ride takes you directly to the heart of Hedeland Nature Park. A walk through the distinctive landscape is a great experience for the whole family. The train runs every Sunday from 17th May to 13th September, as well as the 2nd day of Pentecost. The first train departs at 10.30.
