Art Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Established in the 19th century, Ribe Kunstmuseum occupies a building originally designed as a luxury villa for a local fabric manufacturer. One of Denmark's oldest art museums, the building now contains a fascinating collection of masterpieces by the so-called "Golden Age" painters. You'll find Denmark's big-name artists here, including Jens Juel, Kristian Zahrtmann, C.W. Eckersberg, and L.A. Ring. The museum's riverside garden serves a backdrop for the collection--the area behind the gallery is open to visitors and features paths crossing over the river and leading to two other notable attractions, including a church from the 15th century.

  • A lovely small art museum with some permanent works and changing exhibitions. Good for discovering Northern Lights painters and enjoying the garden with its gazebo and sculptures.
  • Very decent, small town museum, with some nice&moving works by artists you probably never heard about. :)
  • Look past the exhibition with beautiful pictures of among old Ribe and other breathtaking landscape paintings and the many beautiful statues that appear among the pictures. On a dry day you can also go for a walk through the museum garden, it is also very beautiful.
