How has Esbjerg changed over the past years?
Esbjerg has evolved from being a fishing town to a hub for oil and gas exploration, wind-energy production and the IT industry – it’s Denmark’s energy metropolis.
We offer an amazing diversity in the area. Within just 30 minutes from dynamic Esbjerg – which is a young city by Danish standards – you find its opposite, the charming and historic Ribe, which is actually Scandinavia’s oldest town.
Or if you need a change of pace, then you must visit Fanø, an island rich in culture and nature, where you, among other things, can go on seal safari, amber safari and blocart driving.
We are also experiencing a greater focus on sustainability, since we are located by the Wadden Sea National Park, which enjoys UNESCO World Natural Heritage patronage. We’re becoming even better at preserving the amazing nature that surrounds us.
