Esbjerg Performing Arts Centre

This is a vibrant and dynamic cultural centre, annually attracting about 100,000 expectant visitors from all over South and West Jutland to events of all genres and categories.

Concerts, theatre, opera, comedy, musicals, meetings and much more besides. The Concert Hall seats 1,125 people and the Theatre Hall 465. Esbjerg Performing Arts Centre also has excellent facilities for conferences, parties and meetings of any size.

Even when there are no performances, the buil-ding itself (inaugurated 1997) is well worth a visit, designed as it was by the world-famous Danish architect Jørn Utzon, in collaboration with his son, Jan Utzon. The bright foyer with its tall, slen-der columns is perfectly located a short distance from the town square and overlooks the Port of Esbjerg. Every week there is free events in the foyer.
