  • Had a morning free in Esbjerg, so decided to visit the Fisheries- and Maritime Museum, located approximately 4 kilometers to the North of the town square, along the coast road - only a 5 minute taxi (...  more »
  • Cute, but nothing more than what you see in the photos. Details, large, white .... If you are passing may merit a quick stop, but nothing special.

  • A good place for children and adults, but it's going to count on that small children can get bored in the Aquarium since if you do not have one with that can tell whether the fish they will not thought it is funny. There are good dinner experience and so do not cheat yourself to see the seals being fed
