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

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.

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
