Situated in a marshy area separated from the sea by tidal flats, Ribe is probably the best preserved medieval town in Denmark. It is no doubt thanks to its modest size that it has been able to keep its architectural unity and charm intact, without sacrificing its liveliness. In the shadow of Denmark's oldest cathedral, its historical heart houses around a hundred buildings that have been designated Historical Monuments.
