Venture into Zealand and the Danish Riviera

Can you have too many famous sights on one island?

No. You can’t. There’s nothing better than a destination of many wonders! But there really are so many famous and fabulous things worth seeing on the island of Zealand, that we can hardly fit them on this page. We’ll give it a go though.

Woodland wonders

If you go down to the woods today (or whenever you get here) you’ll find some pretty incredible things hidden in the trees in the forests of Zealand…

The Viking city of Roskilde

Roskilde is literally packed with history. It's oozing out. The Viking Ship Museum on Roskilde Fjord is a wonder of living history, where you can even sail in a long ship! The cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the last resting place of royalty. And it’s only 30 mins from Copenhagen.

Explore our Viking heartland

These are three of Denmark’s biggest hitters!

We may be all about the wonder in the small things in life, but we do all the big dramatic stuff in Denmark too. These three very different sights are big attractions in very different ways.

Picture yourself here

These wonderful folks from all over have been kind enough to share their pictures from Zealand with us. (When you've been, you could be featured here too!)
