It's only a short distance to walk from the town centre and worth a visit. You have a nice view over Ribe and there's a lovely statue of Queen Dagmar. You can follow the Energistien from there which makes for a lovely walk.

Lovely to take in as part of walk around Ribe. Free to look at. The walk to the castle takes you down along the river. Very pretty. Not too much to see but nice way to walk off the homemade waffles from Ribe!
