Ribe is the oldest town in Denmark, dating back to the early 8th century. With this there is a lot of historical and cultural points, there is a Cathedral, which is breathtaking. The medieval 'vibe' runs strongly through the beautiful narrow cobbled streets. This is where Scandinavia reaches the rest of Europe and the Vikings launched their wooden ships at Ribe to sell their goods and spread terror around the rest of Europe.
There is a river that flows right through the centre of town making a focal point for restaurant and bars which finishes at the harbour that used to welcome over 600 ships in the middle ages and make an impressive market place for traders all over Europe. If course in addition to the river there are many water mills that make a wonderful sound of funnelling water.
The town hall is stunning, it is the oldest town hall in Denmark, but the ceremony room is just lovely and you can feel the importance of the moment as soon as you enter.
