Overview

St. Laurentius is full of mystery and stories about Roskilde city center About 2 meters below Staendertorvet you will find the rest of St. Laurentii Church which is famous for well preserved and original brick floor. In the ruins there is a small museum with finds from the archaeological excavation carried out in 1998. You can also visit the church tower with a beautiful view over the city and look into the old and preserved dungeons.

The church or now town hall faces the main square of the town and with its architecture adds to the general experience of the medieval feeling.
