Sights and Attractions Near the Hotel
Roskilde Cathedral with royal graves
Roskilde Cathedral is considered one of the most important church buildings in Denmark and one of the most important monuments overall, due to its unique architecture and its connection to Danish history. The cathedral was built in the 12th and 13th centuries in Gothic style with bricks, as one of the earliest examples in Scandinavia, but today contains architectural styles from 800 years. The cathedral has been the burial church of the royal family for centuries and contains 38-40 royal graves: 19-21 kings and 19 queens. Together with murals and art, they tell the story of the kings, the church, and Denmark's history for 1000 years. In 1995, the cathedral was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Boat tour Sagafjord
Experience the Zealand landscape with hills, fields, church towers, blue waves, birds, and high skies from the water. Come aboard the old ship, Sagafjord, that sails out from the port of Roskilde.
Viking Ship Museum
The Viking Ship Museum is Denmark's museum for people, ships, and the sea in prehistoric and medieval times. Through exhibitions, research, and experimental archaeology, the museum seeks to create a living and modern museum that makes our maritime history interesting and relevant.
Roskilde Museum is a state-recognized cultural-historical local museum for Roskilde and its surroundings. The museum conveys the history of Roskilde City and its surroundings through exhibitions with rich finds from the city's history.
Ragnarock's 1,200 square meters main exhibition consists of 11 themes that present the story of how music and youth over time have pushed boundaries and influenced society. Take a captivating journey through the history and development of music and youth culture from the 1950s and onwards - a journey that engages, activates, and makes you break a sweat.
Musicon is a new creative district in Roskilde. The area covers 250,000 square meters. Before 1900, the area was part of the Roskilde Commons and used for agriculture. In the 1900s, gravel was excavated from the area, and the first concrete factory was established around 1940. Concrete elements were produced on the site until 2001, including elements for the Storebælt Bridge and the Øresund Bridge at the Unicon concrete factory.
Hedeland Narrow Gauge Railway

A trip through the distinctive landscape is an experience for the whole family. The train runs every Sunday from May 17th to September 13th, as well as on Whit Monday.

Comwell Roskilde's location by the forest and beach allows for many outdoor activities. Near the hotel, you will find several exciting sights to visit during your stay. During the summer season, Visit Fjordlandet offers a Hop On/Hop Off bus to nearby attractions.
Enjoy a refreshing swim or a walk on the charming Vigen beach park with a beautiful view of the Fjord, where both Viking ships and the dining ship Sagafjord sail side by side with the beautiful yachts. You can reach the beach park within a 15-minute walk from the hotel or 5 minutes on one of our rental bikes. If you prefer a lake swim, we recommend the fantastic natural bathing area at the opal blue lakes Himmelsøen and Lynghøjsøen, located only 8-10 km from the hotel.
Nearest ice cream parlor
You can't go without ice cream in the summer, and you'll find plenty of options near the hotel. The closest is the ice cream kiosk at Vigen Camping Site. However, we recommend going to Roskilde Harbor (3.5 km from the hotel), where you'll find both Paradis Is and Havnekiosken, offering delicious ice cream and waffles. Psst... Michelle from the reception recommends the elderflower sorbet from Paradis Is - it tastes heavenly.

Here, only 4 km from the hotel, you'll find a plethora of small, cozy shops and eateries. If you prefer indoor shopping, you can visit the Ros Torv shopping center, just a 10-minute drive from the hotel.
The beautiful Boserup Forest, 10 km from the hotel, is the most beautiful place for a walk or bike ride. The forest is protected and borders Roskilde Fjord, so you can swim or dip your toes in the fjord on your forest trip. A more local forest tip is Himmelevskoven, only a 20-minute walk from the hotel. The forest is a relatively newly planted forest, but worth a pleasant walk.
