Joy Mogensen, Mayor of the Roskilde City Council, recommends:
"There are so many wonderful things to see in Roskilde and its surroundings. One of my favourites is Rabalder Park - a different park in the middle of what used to be an industrial area. It's got a skatepark and fitness equipment, so the area has become a popular little oasis for many families with children.
I am also very fond of market days at Stændertorvet. Every Saturday Wednesday, the whole square oozes with life, and you can really feel the throb af the city's heart. Another of my favourites is Jyllinge marina just north of Roskilde. A really good Sunday for me is to stroll along the quay, enjoy the view of the fjord, and dream about the free life of the sailor. While eating an ice cream from the kiosk, of course!"
