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.

Tirpitz Museum

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.
