Roskilde and the Viking Ship Museum, Denmark

This was our last stop in Scandinavia for now. We were feeling that you can't come to this part of Europe without learning about the Vikings. That is why we visited the museum back in Stockholm and that we stopped here in Roskilde to see the Viking Ship museum. They found 5 old boats in the bottom of the see from the Viking time and dug them out to restore them. They rebuilt the ships as good as they could with the pieces left. It is a really interesting process. Now, they are also building copies of ships, by hand, with the same tools and techniques the Vikings were using at the time.

The best way to spend our last 18 kroners.


To leave Scandinavia, we took a train to Germany. When the train gets to Fehmarn Belt, they put the whole train on the ferry to cross to Germany. We were impressed as we weren't expecting that.
