Ribe

Ribe – region of raw and expansive natural beauty

Brimming with history, raw beauty and a dash of urban charm, the Ribe region in western Jutland, Denmark, has got it all. Ribe, Denmark’s oldest town, packs a punch with its rich Viking past, evident in every nook of the interactive Ribe Viking Centre. Heading to the town centre, you’re met with the impressive sight of Ribe Cathedral, a landmark that has held its ground since the 12th century. Just beyond the town, the landscape opens up into wide expanses of the Danish countryside, merging into the shifting sands and tidal flats of the Wadden Sea National Park, a must-visit UNESCO World Heritage Site. For a change of pace, hit up Esbjerg, a city buzzing with artsy vibes, just a short drive away.
