An imposing building in the centre of a tiny cute town, Ribe is worth visiting if you are going past. And it is only an hour's drive south of Billund.

The church is huge in all dimensions and the towers can be seen from afar. The mix of red brick for the square tower and the material for the rest blends perfectly.

Ribe Cathedral is one of Denmark´s eldest churches and build in Romanesque style. Several kings are buried in this church. Try to walk up the short of 250 steps of the Tower ( Borgertårnet ) from where you have a nice view over the city.

Very interesting to visit this Dome 900 Years old. The surrounding has been expertly restored and the combination of all old interior and new paintings by Carl Henning Pedersen is very interesting.

We found this old church, arguably The oldest one in Denmark, unimpressive both interior and exterior. While its look imposing for its gothic style we think this church looks average compared with other churches in Europe.
