You can experience art everywhere in Esbjerg.

In fact, Esbjerg’s most famous landmark is a piece of art. The colossal sculpture “Man meets the Sea” is composed of four impressive white figures, which are looking out over the sea. The inspiration is partly from the enigmatic stone statues of Easter Island. Esbjerg’s version can be seen from 10 kilometres away.
