What people are saying:

[History] Ribe Cathedral is an irreplaceable landmark in the local area. Look up at any corner of the town and it will not disappoint you. This is a church of Our Lady. It was built in the Viking Era between 1150-1175 and completed in 1225-1250. It is the first Christian church in Denmark and the best-preserved Romanesque building in Denmark. [Appearance] I have seen hundreds of churches, but small town churches with three colors in one seem to be rare. The building materials of the cathedral include tuff from the Rhine region, German sandstone and Jutland granite. I don't know if it is the relationship of many kinds of stones. The color of the whole church is bright: dark red-chert-brick red. The twin towers on both sides of the main hall are one red and one yellow, one pointed, one high and one low. Although they seem to be assembled, they are closely integrated with the central hall. They are unified in the detail design and the way of brick splicing. . [Interior] Two days in a row, I could not enter the house because I left early and returned late. The day I left was Sunday. I dragged the box and begged the doorman for a long time before putting me inside the door and watching for five minutes. If you have time, I suggest you ascend to the tower, overlooking the red roofs, and overlooking the beautiful scenery of the Ribe River and the grass beach.

    Nordic simplicity

    I have seen comments describing it as bland or boring. It is the nature of the Danish Lutheran to be simple in its interiors in contrast to the opulence of the Catholic churches of the same era. We li...

    Great exterior but bland interior

    The exterior was impressive with its brick towers and walls althoug the apse and choir part was done in another material. The interior did not offer much of interest, sparse and partly modern.

    246 steps to the top. The reward from the top of the tower in Ribe Domkirke is amazing. The flat land gives a far view to the sea and in land. With a good zoom Kammerslusen can be seen if you look wes...
