See

Though Ribe is a small town - there is much to experience. Ribe is the oldest town in Denmark and the closest neighbour to marshland and the Wadden Sea. In Ribe you can stroll around in cobblestoned streets with half-timbered houses an enjoy the atmosphere, the cosy cafés and the speciality shops.

  • Ribe Cathedral (Ribe Domkirke). Is worth a visit alone for the view from the top of the church tower, overseeing the complete town of Ribe, surrounded by flat moors as far as the eye stretches. The view from above, of the city and the river running through it, gives a good impression of the medieval and viking origins of the city. DKK 20 for the tower, the church is free. Ribe Cathedral on Wikipedia  
  • Ribe Castle and queen Dagmar (Riberhus) (From the pedestrian street follow the river towards the coast). Which is not really a castle, as much as a ruin with almost no ruins left. Surrounded by moats connected to the river, however, it presents a worthy site of defense and historical power.The beloved Queen Dagmar, who was married to King Valdemar Sejr, and who according to legend, became ill and then died at Riberhus Castle, but awoke from the dead to speak for the last time with her beloved husband and king.  
  • Ribes Vikinger (Across the roundabout from the railway station). The Museum Ribe’s Vikings – the Viking era and the Middle Ages.  
  • Ribe VikingeCenter (2 km south of town. There's a nice cycleway with signs running from south end of Hundegade.). – a visit to Ribe Viking Centre will provide you with a unique experience and new knowledge about the Viking Age. You can wander round the reconstructed life-size Viking estate, peopled with Vikings with whom you can work and talk  
  • Ribe Art Museum (in Sanct Nicolaj Gade). With paintings from Denmark’s Golden Age and the famous Skagen painters. Ribe_Kunstmuseum on Wikipedia 

Do

  • The Night Watchman in Ribe. Every evening from 1st of May until 29th of October you may accompany the night watchman in Ribe on his route through the old, winding streets, while he is singing to alert citizens about bedtime approaching. Along the way he will tell you tales about witches, floods and fires. 
  • Town Walk in Ribe. Experience the Middle Age, the Reformation and the Renaissance in Ribe - the oldest town in Denmark.
