Roskilde is the ideal holiday area for a bathing holiday with your family, nature experiences and to get an idea of history and culture in Denmark.

The beautiful natural resort at Roskilde Fjord characterizes your holiday area. It has an extensive range of bird life and invites to bathing, angling and refreshing walks in the unique landscape.

At Roskilde Fjord there are many bathing possibilities, but if you want to bathe from another beach, Herslev Strand (3 km) is a good alternative. It has shallow water and course sand and is very suitable for children. At Borrevejle Centret, approx. 5 km from your holiday home, you will find a beach with course sand and grass. Here it is possible to rent canoes if you want to see the area from the waterside.
In the nature reserve at the inlet Roskilde Fjord the water is very shallow, almost all over the inlet with depths of less than 6 metres - and here you will find a large number of wading birds, which breed on the approx. 30 small islands and tongues.

If you are a golfer, you are very well located in this area.
The golf course of Roskilde Golf Klub is only approx. 10 km from the holiday home area and Holbæk Golfklub (24 km) offers you a special experience because of its unique location directly by the peninsular Kirsebærholmen.
