I have visited this small city on my business trip in Denmark. There is plenty of beautiful old houses with typical dannish architecture. Its very pleasant to walk around city and dont forget to taste perfect ice cream. Part of city is also in UNESCO. You can find lot of nice corners and places where to spend some time. Really...

The church is gorgeous from the outside, though I do love the beauty and architecture of churches. Inside, for a small fee, you can wander the building. The wood work/carvings on the pews was amazing and I am always in awe of the stained glass windows. The museum is located on the second floor balcony. It was nothing special, but... More

This cathedral is a wonderful place to visit. It is a UNESCO protected site and the cathedral of the oldest town in Denmark. Especially the tower tour is great on a clear and sunny day. This town is so worth a visit.

As a cathedral is in nothing special. But the view from the tower is amazing. The glass mosaic windows by Carl-Henning Pedersen are a challenge and can give rise to many different opinions.

I'd say that this cathedral is not worth going out of your way to see. In fact it is pretty boring. It's not very big, and it doesn't have any interesting interior or decorated walls. In fact we thought the modern wall decorations at the altar end was pretty terrible. They charge you 20 kr. to walk up into the... More

This old church have some very interesting things to see. Do visit the museum and tower. If you like COBRA art, you'll love the decoration behind the altar.

This cathedral was begun in the 1150s and finished somewhere around 1225. There is a tower with 248 steps to climb past the huge bells and on to the top where the whole of Ribe and beyond can be seen. Absolutely magnificent!

You can stand right next to the bells in the tower which was novel when they chimed. Really 'olde worlde' feel and rickety stairs which were charming. Interesting museum with good displays of local history. Cheap - 2 adults and 2 kids 50 DKK.
