Traversing the North Sea waters that marry Harwich and Denmark, DFDS Seaways provide swift passage into a land of wistful beaches, proud architecture, and rich seafaring history. The harbour city of Esbjerg overlooks the jostling greys of the North Sea, and contrasts its graceful surrounds with inviting cafes, warm eateries, and a colourful spread of boutiques. Hushed museums and galleries offer an unusual glimpse into Scandanavian art and culture, while the enormous white figures of the Men at Sea sculpture watch over the city like faceless sentries.

The aromatic scents of buffet and à la carte cuisine adorn the ship’s restaurants, and further refreshment is supplied by a bar that’s aglow with cocktails, sparkling wines, and other libations. Fresh sea air is in ample supply on the invigorating decks, while each cabin is snugly kitted out with en-suite facilities, towels, and bedding.
Juxtaposed with the modern convenience of a ferry, the Old Lightship’s rustic interiors will provide a hands-on insight into Esbjerg’s maritime heritage. The Water Tower’s Gothic heights offer panoramic views of the city’s cobbled squares, and the tumbling ocean waves beyond. 150 retail outlets can be found along the 600 metre stretch of the Kongensgade, where some of Southwest Denmark’s finest shopping opportunities can be found. Also, for the eco-interested travellers, discover the beautiful landscapes of the island of Fanø just off the Danish coast. Purchase a Scandlines ferry ticket once in Esbjerg and take the short crossing to the island for wildlife and culture.
