A car rental in Roskilde, Denmark allows you to tour this ancient viking city in modern convenience. A member of the "most ancient European towns network," Roskilde traces its roots back to the 980s when Harald Bluetooth built a church and royal estate in the city. Today, Roskilde Cathedral stands in the same location. Offered the status of a market town in 1268, Roskilde was once known as the largest and most important city in Denmark. Today Roskilde remains the economic center of the region and draws tourists by way of its ancient roots, diverse attractions and a popular pedestrian street which runs down the center of the city. Cafes, restaurants and shops line the street.
The island of Zealand, home to Denmark's capital city, offers visitors stunning coastal views and a charming, verdant interior. Beginning your trip with a rental car in Roskilde is a great decision for a number of reasons. As one of the most ancient and historic cities in Denmark, Roskilde offers the opportunity to glimpse the nation's roots. Start your trip in what was once the largest city in the nation and enjoy a drive to Copenhagen - Denmark's thriving cultural hub. This offers travelers a "Denmark: Then and Now" tour sure to enhance your time in both cities.
While Roskilde and Copenhagen both offer visitors public transportation, touring Denmark in a rental car provides the freedom to go off the beaten path - dining in out-of-the-way cafes and enjoying oft-missed views of the Baltic Sea, Denmark's southern Fjords or the hillsides of Jutland's eastern coastline.
