Right now there is an empty space on the wall in Danhostel Ribe’s restaurant. One of Gudrun’s photos “Man with beer” is during December exhibited in Quedens Gaard together with 25 other local artists’ different kinds of art works.  
Ribe Art Museum’s Christmas exhibition is called: “By og marsk, mennesker og dyr, vejr og vind” (town and marshland, man and animal, wind and weather).  The Photo will be back in the hostel in Jan. 2010

Entrance to the exhibition is free. 27. Nov. 2009 – 3. Jan. 2010

Ribe Art Museum – Ribe Kunstmuseum – is momentarily placed in Quedens Gaard because of rebuilding. A.P. Møller og Hustru Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Fond til almene Formaal has granted DKK 46,5 mill for the rebuilding that has started and will go on most of 2010.
60 of Ribe Art Museum’s chief ranging from the Danish Golden Age to the Skagen painters (Eckersberg, Købke, Ancher, Zahrtmann, Ring etc.) can be seen on Den Hirschsprungske Samling in Copenhagen until 5th September 2010 

Welcome to Danhostel Ribe Blog

Ribe Hostel when the meadow is floodedGudrun and Jens welcome you to Danhostel Ribe’s new Blog.
On this stormy and rainy day is it a good day to stay inside and start this blog.

The meadow outside the hostel is flooded. In a way you can say that we have an amazing “sea view”. It´s good to have in mind that Ribe hasn´t been flooded the last 100 years (since the Ribe dike was built). Another day we’ll tell you about the dikes, influence from climate changes and our thoughts concerning that.  

This blog will deal with our hostel Danhostel Ribe and other hostels, Ribe town (history, culture, people etc.), The Wadden Sea National Park that will be established in 2010, and Sustainable Tourism (how do we obtain that and what do we do?)

But first of all we have to look a little around and find out how to “blog”.
