In the old days it was the job of the watchman to keep the peace at night and in Ribe he also had to warn the population of impending floods. The modern police slowly took over, and the Night Watchmen in Ribe ended their work in 1902.
In 1932 it was decided to take up the Night Watchman tradition as a tourist attraction.
