Wanting to see more of Denmark, we decided to get a 20 minute train to the former capital, Roskilde, which was another place we had been recommended to visit. What we expected was Viking ship central, but all we saw were tucked away boats, closed museums, fog, and closing shops. Roskilde was a lovely place that felt very local, but it definitely felt like a place you had to visit in summer to see all of its character. We did see some beautiful buildings though, even if the closest we got to a Viking ship was a billboard. Ah well. We learnt our lesson.
Then we headed off to see some Viking ships. Fail.
