Travel Guide
Esbjerg

Take a trip to one of Denmark’s national parks, discover world-class art and cheer on local football teams in Esbjerg!

The city of Esbjerg is located on the shores of the North Sea so a visit there is a great chance to explore the Wadden Sea, shop in the charming town centre and check out the city’s fascinating museums and art galleries such as the Fisheries and Maritime Museum and the Salt Water Aquarium.

If you travel into Esbjerg by boat, you will be welcomed by the 9 metre-high white sculpture Man Meets the Sea. Whether you intend to spend your full holiday or simply a weekend in the town, don't miss out on a visit to the Wadden Sea National Park, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Watch the tides rise and fall and keep a lookout for the diverse birdlife found here.

Start the day with a walk past the town's landmark Esbjerg Water Tower and carry on down Denmark's longest pedestrian street to browse the wide range of shops. Remember to take a look at Torvegade after dark to see the Stjernedrys sculpture at its best – the lights, or stars, which have been made a part of the cobbled streets represent the night sky that was visible above the town on 1 January 2000.

If you prefer an active holiday, rent a bike to explore, or try your hand at a range of water sports on the North Sea such as wind or kite surfing. If you're more the spectator type, Esbjerg has top-class ice hockey and football clubs. There are several main roads leading into Esbjerg, making it easy to get to. There are also rail links to Struer to the north and Kolding, Funen and Zealand to the east.

Visit Esbjerg and the Wadden Sea in the autumn to marvel at the phenomenon known as ‘Sort Sol’, when hundreds of thousands of starlings gather together and fly in mesmerising formations before settling in to roost for the night. If you fancy a more peaceful trip, combine a visit to Esbjerg with a trip to Fanø to experience the calmer way of life on this beautiful island, famed for its white sands.

Decent
"Overall a decent experience at this hotel. We did however get a family room located at the ground floor with windows facing the shopping street in Esbjerg, which is very noisy also at night, pretty annoying waking up to people puking outside the windows in the middle of the night."
