Ribe Cathedral (Vor Frue Kirke), the city's pompous landmark, can be seen far and wide in the flat landscape. Ansgar, the Apostle of the North, built Denmark's first churches (of wood) in Schleswig and Ribe around 860. The present church was begun between 1150-1175 and completed between 1225-1250. After numerous alterations and additions, it is Denmark's only five-nave church, characterised by changing styles and many interesting details.
