1 Vest Støckens Plads
There is so much choice with Ribe and Esbjerg, although they are technically the same kommune, Ribe is slightly more South that Esbjerg.
Ribe is in the South Jutland region of Denmark. This is 47 minutes by car from the German border and it is easy to get to by train from either Copenhagen or Germany. A wonderful midway between Germany and Copenhagen that offers stunning scenery and a wide variety of options for venues such as beach or Gardens as well as a Town Hall wedding.
To get to these locations you can drive or get the train from Copenhagen or you can fly to Esbjerg airport. On the West coast of Denmark again there are wonderful coastal areas and the Kommune offer a multitude of wedding venues!
You will marry in Ribe Town Hall, commonly know as Det Gamle Rådhus” (the Old Town Hall), breathtaking with its red brick and an amazing background for photos!
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.
For hotels you can not get anywhere more convenient that the Dagmar Hotel, it is directly opposite the town hall, maintaining the authentic medieval style of the town, there is nothing that is straight and this quirky, friendly hotel will have everything that you need. Nice rooms, a full restaurant an outside courtyard and sits on the main square.
Porsborgs GastroBar is a wonderful restaurant still in the main square.
Restaurant Vægterkælderen is another wonderful restaurant which is situated in the Hotel Dagmar.
