The cathedral is also Ribe's landmark and easy to spot in the flat landscape that characterises the region. It took about 100 years to complete the church, which was built around 1250. But since then there have been many additions and alterations, and today the cathedral is the site of a number of tombs to the most powerful men in the kingdom and the city. There is also an epitaph, donated by Valdemar Sejr, in honour of his son who died in 1231. A little south of the cathedral, Christian graves have been found, so perhaps Ansgar's church was also located there. A great experience to go back in time in historic Denmark and see for yourself the famous tombs and the beautiful decorations of the cathedral.
