This city has over a 1000 years of history and a big part is the cathedral and museum. We spent about 2 hours going to the top of the tower and taking pictures of the surrounding area as well as the church itself. We walked through the small museum with interesting artifacts an information about the church. This is worth... More

This is an absolute must if in the area. The building has been restored but still has the original feel. You may donate to the church is you want but unlike others an entrance fee is not charged (unless you go into the tower)

Ribe Domkirke is a pretty church. You got the best view from the tower, you can see the whole town, Vadehavet and Esbjerg. Bother to walk all stairs!!

Picturesque village of Ribe, Jutland definitely worth a visit. Warm friendly place with many good photographic opportunities. At its best mid morning or late afternoon for the best natural lighting of the streets and indoor lighting in the Cathedral. Probably the world's best chocolate cake available here.
