In the southwest of the Jutland peninsula lies Esbjerg on the North Sea coast, the seventh largest city in the Danish Kingdom. Just off Esbjerg is the island of Fanø, which you can easily reach by ferry. To the northwest stretches the picturesque peninsula of Skallingen. The German towns Flensburg and Kolding are not far away. Esbjerg is quite a young town and was established after the German-Danish War in 1864, as Denmark needed a North Sea port again. You should not miss a visit to the Fisheries and Maritime Museum in Esbjerg. Seals await you at the renovated Robbarium.
Blåvands beaches, which are car-free, can be considered a sight in their own right. Miles long, in front of it clear water, which is regularly awarded for its excellent quality. Those who enjoy extended bathing days, water sports such as windsurfing and beach activities such as kite flying, shell collecting and beach volleyball will get their money's worth here.
Since the small Hallig Jordsand sank into the North Sea in 2001, Rømø (in German “Röm”, in North Frisian “Rem”) is the southernmost island in the Danish Wadden Sea. It lies about three kilometers north of Sylt (reachable by ferry) and its appearance has been permanently shaped by the North Sea. Today, about 600 people inhabit the tranquil islet, more than 40 percent of which is covered by sand. What makes the island, which is connected to the mainland by a road embankment, a great vacation destination is the unique feeling of being able to move freely around the island. Some areas are protected, but most of the open spaces are accessible to everyone and can be used for outdoor activities such as horseback riding, biking and hiking. It is also very convenient to be able to drive your own vehicle onto the wide sandy beach of Lakolk. This is one of the longest and most beautiful beaches in Europe, also has a car-free zone at each end and every year the famous "Rømø Kite Festival" takes place here on the first weekend in September.
You get off the ALPEN-SYLT Nachtexpress in Hamburg and have a direct connection to Esbjerg. The ferry to Fanø departs from there three times a day.
