Riberhus Slotsbanke

Today Riberhus Slotsbanke is a moated castle mound with ruins and a statue of Queen Dagmar who according to tradition was taken to Ribe from Bohemia to marry Valdemar the Victorious (1170-1241).

The castle Riberhus was raised in the early 12th century by King Niels and was the favorite abode for Danish kings during the following centuries. It became dilapidated in the 15th century but was still the centre of many historic events. With the Swedish wars in the mid-17th century the castle had had its day and it was pulled down.
