My trip to Ribe/ Denmark

Yes, I went to yet another city in Denmark: Ribe.

Ribe is Denmarks oldest town, situated on the west coast of southern Jutland in Denmark and established in the early 700s.
I went there for a day and don’t worry, I’ll tell you all about it.

We arrived quite early in the day on a Saturday. 

The weather was gloomingly beautiful and it turned out we were in luck since there was a jazz-
 festival in Ribe and the city was filled with music. 


 If you are ever in Ribe, the first thing you should do is book a guided

Ribe has so much to offer when it comes to the history of Denmark, 

that a guided tour through Ribe is almost a must. 

From the
architecture of buildings that are centuries over centuries old,

 to the
myths and sagas of the city. 

What I loved most in Ribe was the art in the Domkirke. 

The paintings were created by Carl Henning Pedersen 

 between 1982-1987 and I found it incredibly refreshing to 

see these fairly modern and different interpretations of ancient stories.

But even if you don’t book a tour, a walk through the adorable streets with

 their indescribable flair are worth your while. 

 It is quite a touristy place so feel free to branch out on your own adventurous
 excursion and explore all the cute hidden cafes and if I may,
I would suggest paying Luscious Organic Cafe & Store a visit.

I had the best day in Ribe and if you are as much of a Denmark freak as I am, I suggest paying Ribe a visit.
