Actually it is a secret, so please don’t tell anybody ... But should you feel in the mood to swim on a hot summer day, go to Veddelev Gammel Strand, a beach located to the right of the yacht harbour. Here you can have a dip in peace and quiet while enjoying the view of the small island of Elleore. And here are much fewer bathers than on popular Vig Strand nearby.
Another adorable spot is the small field behind the Cathedral towards the fjord. In late summer, this little breathing hole changes into a waving grain field. Being a tourist in central Roskilde don’t miss out on a walk along the path through the field running from Provstestræde to Pipershus in the park Folkeparken. And don’t forget to enjoy the view of the impressive mansions on the way
