With its 100 meters, Skjern Reberbane is the longest house in Skjern. As if that were not enough, it is also the narrowest. In its heyday, the rope course was used by the rope maker to make ropes. The ropes were used, among other things, for mooring ropes for ships, rigging for horse-drawn carriages and ropes for ringing the church bell. As part of the living history at Ringkøbing-Skjern museum, you get the opportunity to experience what life was like for different people in a bygone era.

In the old days, it was on the rope course, the rope striker hit the rope. The ropes were used for sewing ropes for ships, ropes for ringing the church bell and to the ring for traditional Danish horse carriages and much more.
Skjern Reberbane is one of the country's few preserved original reefs. Here they have roped in the same way for the last hundreds of years.
