I was surprised by the wonderful art work around the altar by the CoBrA artist Carl Henning Pedersen. A pity that guidebooks are not mentioning it and that it is so little advertised.

A trip to Ribe must include a visit to the old cathedral. Completed around 1250 this magnificent cathedral houses many tombs, testimonials and other interesting artifacts

The Ribe Domkirche (cathedral) is one of the town’s must-sees, so it had plenty of visitors the day we were there; yet it was so large that it retained an air of tranquility.

Pretty church with some interesting surrounding statues. They also have unearthed the original monastery next door which was very interesting (~1100ad)
