Ringsted Things to Do
The church of st Bendts is the biggest attraction in Ringsted. It was built around 1080 by Svend Nordmand, the bishop of Roskilde. The church was made from stone and the lay-out of the church changed several times in history. Three other versions were in place, before the fourth and final version. The development of the church is shown by miniature models inside.
The church has a very nice interior and it houses a coin collection and also some old equipment that was used during masses for example. Also, some Danish kings were buried here, before 1341, after that time, most kings were buried in Roskilde Cathedral. In Ringsted, Valdemar 1st (the Great), 2nd (the Victorious) and 3rd (?) are buried, and also Erik Menved and Erik Plovpenning.
In front of the church is the statue of Valdemar the GreatRelated to:

Ringsted trainstation serves as an local hub for trains from southern Sjælland (Zealand), Lolland and Falster. Connections are however not the most frequent and i have several times spend an hour or more waiting for my connection.
If you are stuck waiting on the station you can however make good use of the DSB kiosk that is located inside the station building.
