  • The men on the sea looking out for many years. Again and again are the imposing, gleaming white statues a great view - in particular, if the Sun they shine against the blue sky.

  • Impressive, but unfortunately very hazy. Nice location by the sea, Harbour and town. Perfect for a long walk or just relaxation. Beautiful landmark of Esbjerg and region

  • Incredibly beautiful location by the nature, the sea and the beach. Option for really long walk on a well landscaped path.

  • Beautiful view, interesting sculptures and not that crowded. However, we've been there during cold weather, so we experienced a lot of wind, but fortunately, sun was shining, so we had a chance to take a good pictures! Parking is literally next to the sculptures (or the other one is across the street next to the museum), so there is no need for long walk. Sandy beach looks clean and is pretty wide and long.
  • Fantastic view. Very big figures, it's a must to visit this place. 100 metres from the figures is a parking space. Great view over the sea and to the Harbour. Sometimes the Oilrig is in the harbour for repairing. Enjoy this area.
  • Amazing place and panoramic. But i was disappointed by the Danish people. They are very racist.😢
  • Bizarre monument by the sea in Esbjerg Denmark. Four (really big) male figures which are depicted in a sitting position looking forever toward the open sea. I've read this is a somewhat scaled down version of the original monument which has been planned with larger statues. Even this scaled down version is really impressive, especially if you look at them in a stormy day, where the white material the statues are made of is really conspicous against dark skies. A must see if you are in Esbjerg, which by the way is a nice city
  • The "Men by the Sea" are a truly awesome sight to behold, regardless of whether the sun is gleaming on their white bodies, dark clouds form a backdrop or dusk shrouds them in mystery! The four approximately 10m high men look stoically out to sea. Their vantage point affords a good view of Esbjerg harbour and ships approaching it. The beach in front of them is a favourite with kite surfers and they put on a good show for the men. There is parking close by. An information board offers information on the statues as well as nearby points of interest and hiking paths. In my opinion no visit to Esbjerg is complete, if you haven't seen the Men by the Sea.
