About Esbjerg, Guide and Tourist Attractions
(Esbjerg, Jutland, Denmark)

Located on the West Coast of Jutland, Esbjerg is Denmark's fifth largest city and is home to over 83,000 inhabitants.

Besides being an integral part of Denmark's offshore oil and gas industry, Esbjerg is a city within close proximity to many natural and manmade attractions.

What to do in Esbjerg

Esbjerg is located close to stunning beaches, which in summertime are the perfect place to head for a spot of relaxation or to enjoy the water sports on offer. There are plenty of secluded spots where you can escape the crowds and settle with a good book. Esbjerg also has something of a reputation for its lively social scene and visitors will find no shortage of venues to eat, drink, listen to music and indulge in a little dancing once the sun has set.

Tourist Attractions

Visitors interested in history should pay a visit to the Fisheries and Maritime Museum, a facility hailed as the largest institution of its kind in Denmark. Here the history and current status of Denmark's marine biology, tidal wetlands, fisheries and coastal shipping industries are examined in a variety of displays and exhibits. Meanwhile, at the Esbjerg Kunst Museum, fans of art can view a large collection of both classic and modern works in a variety of media.

Legoland at Billund is only an hour's drive from the city, an attraction aimed primarily at the young but with plenty to keep the young at heart occupied as well. Another excellent day trip is the town of Ribe, which is about about 29 km / 18 miles away and Denmark's oldest town. Cobblestoned streets, medieval buildings, half-timbered houses and a beautiful river typify the town, which from May 1 through to September 15 offers walking tours from a guide in traditional Ribe costume.
