Entrance to the Cathedral is free and is worth a look around in its own right. However, for 20 kroners each it is worth paying to climb to the top of the tower as you are rewarded when you get there with some great views...More

Ribe Cathedral is one of Ribe's most popular tourist attractions and Denmark's oldest cathedral. It is 63 meters long and 36 meters wide. An impressive cathedral that is beautifully restored and with a completely different altarpiece. I have been told that when the COBRA painter...More

Has a long history, with some interesting rebuilt sections following fires and collapses. Not surprising given Ribe is Denmark's second oldest City. Beware the cathedral precinct as the vehicles go all round the church and in all directions there are no road markings at all.

Old cathedral, birthplace of Christianity in Denmark. Buildings, tower and decorations added later. Located in the centre of ancient Ribe town.

As this wasn't too impressive nether architecture or art wise, there's other churches nearby I'd rather use my time in. I bet there's interesting stories that could be told, but we didn't get to hear this. Free entry though, so why not see for yourself?!

The modern glass paintings and mosaics behind and above the altar is the most dominant feature of this church. In my opinion Carl Hennings Pedersen expressive art don't fit very well in this traditional cathedral.

This church is certainly a focal point of a lovely town. There are some renovations going on inside but you are able to photograph around the scaffolding. The mosaics behind the alter are whimsical, colorful and wonderful.
