It's virtually impossible to miss the church here in Ribe, right in the center of the Centrum, towers dominating the horizon. It's always amusing to take a tour of an historic structure in the US, be told it's "old" as in "built in 1900", as compared to Ribe where the houses and especially the church date back a millennium.

The monumental church in the oldest town of Denmark in the middle of picturesque square. The ability to climb to the tower of church.

We struggled to get inside because of all the building works going on around it. However we did find it to be an interesting church and generally well maintained - like most churches in Denmark. It was not the most exciting or interesting church we had been to in the area but worth a visit if you are in the... More

Ribe Cathedral is very unusual. It has a very nice feel about it and walking around it is relaxing. When you reach the altar that is an entirely different matter. It's like Marmite - either you like it or you don't!! The glass in the windows by the altar is very bright and I feel attractive, but I just could... More

This church is huge from outside and it's quite hard to take full photo of it. Entrance to the tower has a small fee and church is otherwise free. The tower is quite tall and there are many stairs up to the top. First parts are wide and easy but stairs get more and more steep, narrow and harder. There... More

The entrance to the church is free and pretty neat to see. The modern art was unexpected. We paid the 20,-kr each to go up the tower and museum. The tower was not too bad going up and down - it doesn't get too narrow towards the top. Great view! The museum is about two floors up and overlooks the... More

A truly gothic old church built in several periods with nice architecture. Visit the tower and museum or take a moment in the church.

There are some beautiful things about this church including recently uncovered, stunning catholic paintings and a beautifully carved and decorated pulpit. But the modern mosaics and stained glass are jarring. The exterior is also uneven with some beautiful steeples but the stone and brick work is jumbled together. I recommend that if you in Ribe to see the beautiful medieval... More
