A different Denmark – Changing plans in Esbjerg

After our visit to the vineyard, Lars and I continued our drive to Esbjerg.

It’s the biggest town of the west of Jutland and one of the biggest of Denmark; it’s main economic activity is industry:

The city was once Denmark’s biggest fishing harbour, and the harbour is still an economic driving force in the town. Besides the fishing industry Esbjerg is also the main city for Denmark’s oil and offshore activities. Companies like MaerskRamboll, Stimwell Services, ABBSchlumbergerCOWI and Atkins all have offshore related activities in the city.

It was our goal to visit the maritime museum, but unfortunately it was closed, due to renovation works. So instead we went to have a look at a part of the harbor. Yes, I confess, I am not only attracted by the sea and beaches, but by (big) boats as well!
