Walking through Ribe, the path to the river was blocked, with a detour through the gardens of the Ribe Kunstmuseum (art gallery). Stunning works of art, in very pretty and relaxing manicured riverside gardens. Recommended for those wanting to get away from it all!

Fantastic gallery and building. Really some great masterpieces in here - from Danish Golden Age, Skaagen impressionists and some more recent works, including some paintings from Ribe.

Good examples of Danish painters and a few sculptors. Enjoyed current shows of modern painting and winter themes. Nice way to learn about unknown artists and see scenes of Ribe in earlier periods.
