The 4 men gaze out to sea. One man is not aligned with the others. I wonder if there’s a meaning behind that. It’s a good family beach with many kids playing and people biking. There was what looks like construction of some sort to...More

This place offers a nice view of the sea and Esbjerg Harbour. The statues are not that interesting themselves, in my opinion. Fishery Museum very near there. The museum is ok, but not worth the high entry fee - again just my opinion. I would...More

Stunning sculptures. Gives you a feeling of the human proportion and somehow - power. Worth the visit if passing by Esbjerg. Super amazing sunset view too!

Situated north of Esbjerg by the sea, at Sædding beach. Made by sculptor, painter and graphic artist Svend Wiig Hansen. Revealed in 1995. The sculpture is inspired by Easter Island monoliths, and portrays the pure and uncorrupted man's encounter with nature.

Coming to Esbjerg is not maybe the most beautiful city in Scandinavia, but ... coming to Sodding Strand and the monumentally artwork 'Men meets as sea' or 'Men at the Sea', makes your mouth opens and your brain starts to spin and develop! Here is...More
