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.

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

Ribe is the oldest city in Dänemark, founded in 704. The buildings that make up the old part of town are mainly from the late 1500s and earlyt 1600s and really, really nice. Scattered amongst them are small restaurants - a craft beer brewery, and plenty of little shops. It's well worth a visit if going to Dänemark, and well... 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!!

The church is open until 5pm so we finally got checked in and found a car park. By that time it was 4:30 - just enough time to head up the stairs of the Domkirke for a great photo or two. But, no. They close the stairs early - just because. The next day they will also be closed until... More
