VoM2: Esbjerg, Denmark

Esbjerg is a nice, fairly typical little Euro-Scandia city. It’s got a tidy, compact downtown core with a sprawling port facility on one side and a mix of residential, university and green spaces on the other. There is also a hodgepodge of cultural establishments, including a small but very interesting wartime occupation museum and a pretty extensive maritime museum that has an adjoining aquarium and seal tank.

The city is most famous, however, for it’s massive “Man Meets The Sea” sculpture and it’s reasonable proximity to Legoland. I feel like I’ve pretty much covered Esbjerg in two full days, and am ready for another all-day train ride tomorrow to reach Hirtshals at the northern tip of the peninsula.
