  • You do not have to be particularly interested in churches to visit Ribe Cathedral, and children will also think it's exciting. It is Denmark's only femskibede Church. The Church (the current) has started around the year 1150 and it is filled with history. It would be a good idea to prepare a little bit, by reading about the Church, for example. on the Internet. Church choir is beautifully decorated by Carl Henning Pedersen, both with murals, mosaic and stained glass. Don't deceive yourself (and certainly not children) for Citizen Tower from 1333. It is 50 meters high, and there are approximately 250 steps up. Stunning views. The modern statue of Ansgar in front of the Church is also fantastic-there were many symbols of his struggle with the pagans. Hole in the hand as Jesus on the cross, viking ornamentation and a Raven on his shoulder. Hugin and Munin-Odin's two Ravens as each day brings news from the Earth. The two Ravens flew out into the world every morning and every night they came back – perched on Odin's shoulders and told him what had happened in the Nordic world – both gods and men.

  • Outside the Church is a statue of Ansgar sites-suggesting the Church's ancient origins. The present Church is not special, but there are adorned with fine glasmusaikker. One should begrudge themselves a trip to the tower. There are stunning views over the marshes and mudflats.

  • Nice looking Church. Only Carl Henning Pedersen's mosaics was an experience. The trip in the Tower I would not have missed. Beautiful views, as well as a bench to sit and soak it all in.

  • This was very interesting to see, and the view from the top, although you might be winded when you get to it, is absolutely beautiful! If you're passing by it would definitely be worth a visit.
  • Beautiful and historic. Great place to see.
  • A very impressive looking church. Definitely take some time to visit this place during your stay in Ribe.
  • Happen to be in the bell tower when 4pm occured and witnessed the mechanics of the clocks, levers, pullies, etc that make the bell striker ring the bell.
  • Beautifull views from top of the Bell tower
