Board a motorcoach and relax for a panoramic drive through Esbjerg. Your guide will point out the main sights and explain the role Esbjerg Harbor in today's Denmark. You'll learn how Esbjerg has developed into an important cultural and educational hub as is Denmark's fifth-largest city.

Continue to the impressive Man Meets Sea sculpture, depicting the raw relationship between humans and nature. The inspiration for this work of art was found in the monolithic moai statues of Easter Island.

Driving along the coastal road, enjoy the west coast of the Jutland province. Your guide will tell you more about the function and role of the coast during World War II. Your destination is the Bunker of Tirpitz, where you'll stop briefly for photos.

Head back to the city and drive through the newly-established Vognbølpark -- a recreation area awarded the Nordic Green-Space Award.

Next, you'll see the oldest church in the city, called Our Savior's Church. Hear the story of the church, built in 1869 due to the demand of the local inhabitants who complained about the lack of a local place of worship. Admire the old Court & Arrest House, the temple-like St Nikolaj Church, the city park with the Concert Hall, and the old water tower in neo-medieval style that dates back only to 1896, but has become an iconic landmark of the city.

After this introduction to this city and its surroundings, return to the ship.

Notes:

Suitable for guests using a wheelchair and for those with mobility limitations with a companion to assist. All participants must be able to (dis)embark the coach, but participants may stay on the coach at the Turpitz photo stop. There is sandy terrain at the Man Meets Sea monument.
