Ribe 003

My kind of walk works out best starting with an excellent cup of espresso.

A july walk in the oldest danish city, around the cathedral of the city of Ribe.

My inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes
this area is perfect for an inspiring walking – can’t miss the historical atmosphere.

Ribe Domkirke 01

The cathedral of Ribe, translated from danish the real name is “Notre Dame Maria”
was built from 1110 -1134, earlier there was a wooden church from the 860s.
One of the 3 towers once long ago (1534) crashed down
the citizens couldn’t afford the money for a rebuild of the peak
it’s the reason for the different towers.

Ribe Domkirke 03

Impressive room – perfect for a rest before or after climbed the tons of steps of the tower.

Ribe Domkirke 04

 View from the top of the flat tower of the cathedral.

Ribe 004

Not far from the cathedral on the edge of the city of Ribe
where the royal palace “Riberhus” was placed, there isn’t much left of the castle
but lack of castle being counterbalanced by a sculpture of the former Queen Dagmar.
An amazing sculpture in my eyes.
The history of the queen is strongly related to the city of Ribe and she died at the castle
actually the sculpture is looking up toward the cathedral of Ribe.
