The Cahtredral in Ribe has an exiting history and tells the story of Ribe very well. If you are in normal shape you should try to get the perfect view at the ocean from the tower, but please keep in mind you will have to...More

There's no entrance fee for the cathedral but you pay a reasonable 20kr to go up the tower and to visit the small museum. The view from the top is amazing and definitely worth the climb. The museum is quite interesting although the displays are...More

Small church but take a quick tour before getting into the tower: from the top the view of the town is remarkable

It is definitely worth paying the fee to go up the tower. The views from the top are fantastic and you get a proper feel for how the town developed. Passing by the bells at various stages on the climb is fascinating as is the...More

Ribe Cathedral is one of Ribe's most popular tourist attractions and Denmark's oldest cathedral. It is 63 meters long and 36 meters wide. An impressive cathedral that is beautifully restored and with a completely different altarpiece. I have been told that when the COBRA painter...More

Has a long history, with some interesting rebuilt sections following fires and collapses. Not surprising given Ribe is Denmark's second oldest City. Beware the cathedral precinct as the vehicles go all round the church and in all directions there are no road markings at all.

The church is large, located at the centre of the plaza, you won' miss it. The admission to the church is free but admission fee is required for climbing up to the roof and museum. The bird-eye view from the top is not so amazing...More
