Eight days of bicycle holiday around the southern part of Kattegat, which is the body of water north of Funen/Zealand between Jutland and Sweden. Planned as a "wilderness trip" with accommodation at shelter sites or in the woods in my tent, with primitive cooking and bath in the sea or in a lake. Comprises two ferry crossings: Elsinore (Zealand, Denmark) to Helsingborg (Scania, Sweden) and Halmstad (Halland, Sweden) to Grenaa (Jutland, Denmark)

I intend to bike as close to the coast as possible. With exceptions on a kind of prologue from the station of Roskilde along the fiord of Roskilde to the northern coast of Zealand and also on the way back in Jutland, where I often go further away from the coast, as the peninsulas and deep fiords would make a route along the coast too long.

The landscape is characterized by the coast with long stretches through nature and large forests and fine beaches, in Denmark sandy or stony ones, in Sweden mostly rocky beaches. Highlights are the wild Swedish peninsulas of Kullen and Bjäre. However, I will also pass larger towns and cities like Helsingborg, Halmstad, Aarhus, Horsens and Vejle.

Roskilde Cathedral (Danish: Roskilde Domkirke), in the city of Roskilde Wikipedia Icon on the island of Zealand (Sjælland) in eastern Denmark, is a cathedral of the Lutheran Church of Denmark. The first Gothic cathedral to be built of brick, it encouraged the spread of the Brick Gothic style throughout Northern Europe. Constructed during the 12th and 13th centuries, the cathedral incorporates both Gothic and Romanesque architectural features in its design. Until the 20th century, it was Zealand's only cathedral. Its twin spires dominate the skyline of the town.

The cathedral has been the main burial site for Danish monarchs since the 15th century. As such, it has been significantly extended and altered over the centuries to accommodate a considerable number of burial chapels. Following the Danish Reformation in 1536, the bishop's residence was moved to Copenhagen Wikipedia Icon while the title was changed to Bishop of Zealand. Coronations normally took place in Copenhagen's Church of Our Lady Wikipedia Icon or in the chapel of Frederiksborg Palace Wikipedia Icon.

The cathedral is a major tourist attraction, bringing in over 125,000 visitors annually. Since 1995, it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A working church, it also hosts concerts throughout the year.
