We've been there a couple of times now. It's always great to visit the aquarium. The special exhibition is changing from time to time. The aquarium itself is really big for this side off the country. There are plenty off animals to learn about and...More

We didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. Sealife combined with the Danish fishing history. A cool exposition about the fishing industry through the years. Nice pieces giving you a good idea of the early life. Impressive acquarium with specimen who actually...More

If you are interested in the fishlife in the danish sea, it's a okay place to go. And also to see the seals. But after 1-2 hours, it's about enough, and on a rainy day no fun seeing the outside. If you are really into...More

We had a quick 10 minute stop to see these statues. Interesting structures. You can see out across the shipping area. We were there late in the evening, so there weren't any other people around.

Ved Hjertingvej og vejen om til Gravlunden, er der en granitmur, hvor der står navne, på de mange fiskerer, som omkom, før krigen, under og efter krigen. Hvor mange fisker omkom og hvor mange skibe forliste? I min drengetid, var der mindegudstjeneste, i radioen, nytårsdag, fra Esbjerg.
