The threshold of the idyll

Ribe 003

At the threshold of the good old days in the danish city of Ribe
many buildings in the cityscape were built as similar farms were in the countryside
with a gate as a threshold into a closed area
these ports were that time business card or brand image to the outside world.

Ribe 001

The southernmost part of the danish West Jutland
and the northernmost part of the german Schleswig
the danish-german Wadden Sea has a number of small water canals and small rivers.
This allows flat-bottomed small boats can sail into a number of cities from the sea.

Also in the city of Ribe, it allows stepping over the threshold by the back door.

Ribe 002

One of the smaller non navigable city waterways.

  5. Rigtig spændende by, Ribe og meget dejlige billeder, Drake.
    The non navigable city waterway, ligner én, du sagtens kan klare på din mountainbike. Jeg kan svagt huske noget om en lidt ‘antik’ bro, nogle venner synes, du skulle passere som den første 🙂
    Mange gode hilsner,
    Hanna

  6. Very interesting post! I admit that I know almost nothing of Denmark, I’m sorry 😦 so I’m very happy to see pictures of your country and to learn something about it. 🙂

      There is one waterway through the city of Ribe called Ribe Å (river) – it has some tiny water channels that carry water to the river too – the city has emerged along the river which is “Intregrated” in the city… 🙂
