One of Denmarks oldest #underground venues is Paramount - Paramount is from the late sixties and is still rocking with everything from #metal and #hiphop to oldschool #rocknroll and #punk! I enjoy loud music, cheap beers and upcoming artists - If you feel the same way, make sure visit Paramount!

Even when the weather is freezing cold, the area around the #harbour and #vikingsshipmuseum is an experience - Take a stroll and enjoy the smell of tar, eat an ice-cream and let yourself be amazed by the cool viking ship.

When it comes to having something delicious and local to eat, @restaurant_moehr is a must! - It’s #local #nordic and REALLY REALLY delicious!

The area around #SctJørgensbjergKirke (Church) and #Kirkebakken is where I go to relax - It’s right beside the harbour and the little alley Kirkebakken is a true gem!

The skatepark at #musicon is much more than skating!

When in Roskilde, make sure to stop by @musiconroskilde #Musicon! A new district focusing on culture, new business and creativity.. Stop by #RAGNAROCK @museumragnarock the museum for pop, rock and youth culture - An interactive experience and an amazing building!

Together with all the #volunteers at #OrangeMakers, #Bistedet and #MakerCorner we went to this local gym that sadly had burned down, but the floor was so what intact - We where able to pick it up, clean it and use it in our new makerspace! #TEAMWORK.
