Day 3  : Copenhagen - Odense

Breakfast at the hotel. Pick up car downtown depart Copenhagen, driving westward through farming countryside and small villages, some of which were founded by Vikings more than a thousand years ago. Upon arrival in Roskilde - until 1417, the capital of Denmark, we recommend a visit to the Viking Ship Museum, containing the remains of 5 Viking vessels which have been salvaged from the bed of Roskilde Fjord, where they were sunk more than a thousand years ago to prevent aggressive intruders gaining access to the town from the sea. After visiting the museum, a short drive to the Town Square, to visit the twin-spired Roskilde Cathedral. The construction of the Cathedral was commenced during the 12th century and additions have been made through the ages, in different architectural styles. The Cathedral is the traditional burial place of Danish monarchs and contains more than 40 royal graves. Continue from Roskilde to Halskov from where you will drive over one of the world's largest suspension bridges constructed off-shore and arrive on the island of Funen. Continue to Odense, Denmark's third largest city and Hans Christian Andersen's home town. Overnight in Odense.

Today it is a family owned castle which has belonged to the family Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille since 1784. Visit the Great Hall which dates back to 1554 and contains furniture and paintings as well as seven adjoining rooms.
