Ribe Things to Do: 13 reviews and 15 photos


Begun in 1150 the Cathedral in Ribe, as you can gather from the photo, is an amalgamation of clashing building styles, making for an eclectic-looking building consisting of two towers. The tower to the left is a stone spire, built in the 1200s, and the tower to the right is made of brick and built in 1333, which replaced what was a second stone tower.

Climbing the tower you get a great view of the surrounding countryside. Looking around throughout Ribe, in certain directions the medieval town ends right where farmland begins with nothing "modern" in between, making for a unique view.
