WALK OF THE SPRINGS
With this high number, however, Roskilde occupies the leading pla- ce north of the Alps for towns with a multitude of springs. In addition to the eight named springs, there are springs by the Fjord and in various private gardens.
The water in Roskilde has always been considered to be something special. The large num- ber of springs had different effects: Some springs were thought to be healing for the sick, others were used for drinking water and laundering and some for motive power or they served as water supply for man and animals. Book a guide to hear about Roskilde’s unique history of springs.
The walk takes one hour and is available in English, German, French, Swedish and Danish.
1 HOUR | PRICE FOR A GROUP OF UP TO 30 PERSONS: DKK 800.
