I very much recommend a walk through the old stone paved streets while you experience the old town houses there. You can also go shopping in our many wonderful shops that offer wide selections because we have so many tourists here. Also, there’s always some interesting exhibition at Ringkøbing-Skjern Museum.
Ringkøbing is an artist town with many galleries to explore. You should also go see the controversial sculpture ‘Survival of the fattest’ which is also called ‘The Fat Lady’. Or go to our beautiful and lively town square and visit this town’s small charming patios. If you are here in the night time are warmly recommend our many restaurants and Ringkøbing’s beautiful cinema which features the latest in films.
The harbour is also a great place with both modern and old buildings. There is a small and charming little path that trails past the small fisherman sheds next to city hall, which my husband designed years ago. When you’re walking past that area, you should go for a walk along the wonderful fjord. There’s a great path here that goes on for miles, with benches and tables where you can enjoy the view. In the furthest part of Ringkøbing you will find the surf hut and a grand new bathing jetty at Sorte Bakker (‘Black Hills’).
Married couple Eva and Flemming Bay-Jørgensen live and work in Ringkøbing. Eva is an artist and owns the gallery Evabay and Flemming is an architect with his own architectural firm in Ringkøbing.
Eva was born in Ringkøbing and Flemming is from Copenhagen; he fell in love with this miniature city. They both love this old market town’s architecture, the local community, and the surrounding countryside and nature.
