How to reach Ribe
Ribe is 30 km (19 mi) from the North Sea ferry terminal at Esbjerg, or 50 km (31 mi) north of Tønder near the German border. If you're driving from Copenhagen, take the E66 to the junction with highway 32 near Vejen, then head southwest on 32 to Ribe. Driving is simple enough: Just buy a map and follow the highway signs. (We recommend the 1:200000 Færdselskort map series from Denmark's Geodætisk Institut, which are available in most Danish bookstores.)
For tips on travel by air, train, or bus, see the Ribe Tourist Office's Web site (link below).
DFDS Seaways has year-round ferry service between England and Esbjerg. See page 4 for a link to DFDS.
