[Denmark] Circular day-trip around CPH: Helsingør, Hillerød, Roskilde


We'd like to visit the following sites in one (or possiblyl, two days): Helsingør, Hillerød, Roskilde.

Since the total trip is over 140km, we'll have to combine it with public transportation (we'll have folding bikes).

If someone here knows the area, is any of the legs worth riding, or should we just take a train/bus?

Thank you.

Hi Winfried,
You might have done this trip already, but if you haven't then I'll recommend to do the Copenhagen - Helsingør - Hillerød as planned. From Hillerød to Roskilde, I would try to stay on smaller roads, probably something like through Lynge, Ganløse, Søsum, Veksø, Gundsølille and Store Valby. For the last bit, from Roskilde to Copenhagen, I would take the train.

If you do the trip, then you can decide in Hillerød if you want to continue to Roskilde, or just take the train back to Copenhagen. Train goes every 20 minutes. You can check train schedules here:

Btw. you can bring regular bikes in most danish trains. Not the metro, though. And it's free in all s-trains in the Copenhagen area.

Late reply, I am newer here..

Highly recomend the Helsingør to Copenhagen trip. We rode the train from Copenhagen to Helsingør. Kronborg castle was our main target here. Be prepaired to leave the bikes quite far from the castle. If you can leave the luggage somewhere else I`ll recomend that. We decided that one person watch bikes and luggage, two peopel see the castle and then change. <takes twice the time but safer..

From there south and a bit inland. <in an industrial area you`ll find the technical museum. Lots of cool old bikes and stuff.

From there back to ride closer to the coast. You`ll get to a museum that used to be the home of author Karen Blixten. The film "Out of Africa" with Maryl Streep is based on her book and her life.

From here be aware that buying food close to the coast can be a problem. I am sure there are shops further inland but where?? Buy when you can, do not count on finding lots of shops. My guess is that the price of land close to the ocean force them to go inland.

There is a museum Louisianna and a zoo that comes to mind before entering Copenhagen. A really beautiful campingsite just before (north of) Copenagen. You need to book in advance to be able to stay there.

Did not ride to the other places you mentioned.

If you can go to the island Bornholm.

Have a great holyday!
