Ribe is in Jutland, Denmark.
Trains run to Ribe hourly from Esbjerg, during daylight hours, and less frequently at night, until around midnight. Trains also run to Ribe from Tønder with similar frequencies.
Ribe railway station is located on the eastern side of the town, approximately 5-10 minutes walk from the centre.
Ribe is a small town, and the only really practical method for getting around is on foot.
- Ribe Cathedral (Ribe Domkirke), is worth a visit alone for the view from the top of the church tower, overseeing the complete town of Ribe, surrounded by flat moors as far as the eye stretches. The view from above, of the city and the river running through it, gives a good impression of the medieval and viking origins of the city.

- Ribe Castle (Ribe Slot), which is not really a castle, as much as a ruin with almost no ruins left. Surrounded by moats connected to the river, however, it presents a worthy site of defense and historical power. Here you can read about the beloved Queen Dagmar, who was married to King Valdemar Sejr, and who according to legend, became ill and then died at Riberhus Castle, but awoke from the dead to speak for the last time with her beloved husband and king: http://www.danhostel-ribe.dk/index.php?id=70

- Restaurant "Sælhunden" is a nice small place near the harbor, decently-priced.
