The port of Roskilde can be accessed around the clock, but only in light and visible weather. The harbor's two red bay lighthouses lead in course 165.5 °. The city's backlight makes it difficult to spot the lighthouses so watch out. There is a speed limit of 3 knots in the harbor basin. The museum harbor, located in the eastern part of the harbor, must not be taken by pleasure boats.
