The harbor can only be accessed during daylight and at high tide. To get to Ribe one has to pass the Ribe Chamber Lock. The lock is operated 24 hours a day and you have to pay to sail through. The entrance to Ribe Kammersluse is marked with cost all the way and easy to navigate at high tide. At normal low tide, boats with a depth of 40-50 cm can just pass through. The worst point is just after the S-turn over a distance of a few hundred meters. One's boat has to reach a maximum of 1 meter in order to be able to fully enter Ribe town. There is a speed limit of 3 knots.

Ribe is Denmark's oldest city. Ribe Harbor is located in the middle of the city center, so all the sights of the city are a short distance away. From the Viking Age until around the 1600s, Ribe Harbor was the most important port on the west coast of Jutland for shipping agricultural goods and importing goods such as wine, silk, salt and spices.
