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

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

We stayed right opposite so saw this church as soon as we came out our hotel each morning . Went in once but around the outside several times. Beautiful interior and you can climb the tower if you have the energy, for wonderful views apparently

Very interesting place - beautiful old church-museum, have panoramic view, where you can see all Ribe - the oldest town in Denmark. Entry not free, but very cheap.

Very impressive church from the outside, but there are nicer churches and cathedrals in Denmark. Worth a visit if you are in town.
