Fly to Esbjerg

Gateway to Jutland, Legoland, relaxing land

Denmark is a famously chilled-out country (they invented hygge, after all, the uniquely Danish feeling of cosy contentment), so let’s start with a coffee in Esbjerg’s spacious Main Square, or a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants and cafes, while you consider your options.

You could go for retail therapy in the longest shopping street in Denmark or visit the nearby centre for performing arts. Take in a museum or gallery or two, touch on wildlife, printing, offshore activities - the Lightship Museum has the Horns Rev, the world’s oldest and best-preserved lightship. The many surviving military bunkers along the coast are astonishing reminders of WW2.

At the Esbjerg harbour entrance ...

... you can’t miss the statues of four nine-metre-tall seated figures: the imposing sculpture, Man Meets the Sea. That sea is the Wadden Sea, a UNESCO World Heritage site, of precious salt marsh and wetlands. The visitor centre – a remarkable building in itself - reveals all. Esbjerg can be your threshold to the Jutland peninsula and its windmills and white sand beaches, and to the family delight that is Legoland, in Billund. Flying to Esbjerg is easy – child’s play, in fact.

Esbjerg Festival Week
