It is located in the city center with a beautiful view to the sea, city park and the harbor area. And it is just 150 m. from the main city square.

On Tuesday, an excursion to the Denmark's oldest city, Ribe, is planned.

How to get there

Esbjerg can be easily reached by a direct regular (IC) train that goes from the Copenhagen Central Station every hour. The travel time is about 3 hours. There is also a possibility to take a train from the Copenhagen Airport with one short stopover in Odense. Check the Danish railways website for more details. Please keep in mind that in Denmark a regular train ticket is valid for a whole day. But it does not include seat reservation, if you want to secure a seating place in a particular train, you need to purchase it separately. Danish railways also offers cheaper "Orange" tickets, which are not refundable and must be purchased for a particular train.

Another possibility to reach Esbjerg is to book a flight to Billund Airport which is located in 60 km from Esbjerg and has regular bus connection. Billund airport has several daily flights to/from Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, London, Oslo and several other cities.

Finally, if you prefer travelling by car, Esbjerg is well connected with Copenhagen and other big cities by a high-speed motorway E20, which, in its turn, is connected with the largest European road, E45. Thus a car trip from e.g. Hamburg to Esbjerg takes about 3 hours.
