Welcome to Esbjerg

Unforgettable adventures on the West Coast of Denmark. Exciting shopping, inspirational culture and beautiful nature.

Man meets the sea

Visitors arriving in Esbjerg from the sea are greeted by Svend Wiig Hansen's monumental sculpture "Man meets the Sea", which was raised on the occasion of Esbjerg celebrating its 100th anniversary as an independent municipality in 1994.


One of the biggest gun positions in the Atlantic Wall during World War II was meant to be placed at Blåvand. It was never finished, though, as the war came to an end before the construction was complete. Through two decades this ruined bunker was a popular museum, but from the summer 2017 it is replaced by a brand new museum, containing four large sections with separate exhibitions. The roof on the new museum is planted with lyme grass and the whole building is camouflaged as part of the landscape, with the bearing parts of the construction hidden under the sand.

The Fisheries & Maritime Museum

Fascinating experiences for the whole family - watch the seals in the sealarium and the attractive fish and attention-grabbing animals in the aquaria, or learn more about man and the sea in the displays on fisheries, seafaring, and nature below the sea surface.


Take the ferry to Fanø from the Port of Esbjerg. Fanø offers wide sandy beaches and great experiences in nature. Here you can experience kite flying, seals, oysters, kite buggy and more. At Fanø you will find plenty of culture at small galleries or museums - and of course you should enjoy a beer at Fanø Bryghus.

Esbjerg Golf Club

In Esbjerg Golf Club you can choose to play on the championship course Marbæk, or the newer course Myrtue. Both lanes have 18 holes and are of high quality. There is also a Par-3 course and a driving range, where you can warm up for a round of golf.

Esbjerg Art Museum

Do you need new perspectives or a different visual take on what is well-known ? Do you need a mindful break in your busy meeting programme? Esbjerg's Art Museum is a space for an alternative pause. Or a creative session, if you want to try new ways of working together as a team with art as the focus point, or boosting your creativity when solving tasks or problems.
In close collaboration with you, the museum develops the content of your visit to make it a unique and valuable contribution to your meeting or event. From dialogues evolving around special exhibits of the newest art to exceptional meetings involving visual arts, music or poetry – that fit any target group or time frame.
