A cathedral, because of Ribe's status as the oldest city in Denmark. The museum on the top floor is excellent, and shows the transition from Catholicism to Lutheranism, and why the cathedral is important, with architectural models and archeological remnants. Wonderful windy views from the tower (and of the belfry) but very steep and windy. Watch for concerts and special... More

The view at the top of the church is amaing. you can see whole Ribe. Although it is tired after climbing hundreds staircases, it is worth to do so. It is a must-go spot for tourist. you must to pay for it and go to the top of church.

This was a beautiful cathedral and, I think it is known as the Ribe Cathedral. It is close to a thousand years old, which is just hard to get my mind around. The building was constructed in phases and you can see the different materials used in those phases. The inside is quite large and beautiful. It is well worth... More

Ribe Cathedral is one of Denmark´s eldest churches and build in Romanesque style. Several kings are buried in this church. Try to walk up the short of 250 steps of the Tower ( Borgertårnet ) from where you have a nice view over the city.

Very interesting to visit this Dome 900 Years old. The surrounding has been expertly restored and the combination of all old interior and new paintings by Carl Henning Pedersen is very interesting.

We found this old church, arguably The oldest one in Denmark, unimpressive both interior and exterior. While its look imposing for its gothic style we think this church looks average compared with other churches in Europe.

We have visited Ribe and walked through the whole centre, to Domkirke and the canal. Streets are full of beautiful old houses, it kind of looks like fairytale town. Domkirke itself is magnificent in the simple but eyes catching way, it really is very different from baroko churches in Czech Republic I am used to (and that I hate so... More
