West Jutland is characterized by fantastic beaches at the southern west coast where there are some exceptional nature sceneries by the Wadden Sea surrounding the beautiful islands of Rømø, Mandø and Fanø. In Esbjerg, the biggest town of the region, there are many cultural activities and excursion possibilities.
Visit the holiday resorts, Blåvand and Henne Strand, by the southern west coast with the most fantastic beaches of fine, white sand and high dunes. These places are especially known for their beach and shopping life and many activities for children.
On the islands of Rømø, Mandø and Fanø you can experience the lively Wadden Sea. Here nature reigns – for instance you can only reach Mandø when it is low tide. The Wadden Sea is incredibly rich in animal life. Especially migratory birds settle in this area to make food supplies, and on Fanø it is possible to see a great number of seals. If you plan to visit more than one of the islands, it is a splendid idea to bring your bike. There are many bicycle trails leading you through the landscape. All of the three islands have fantastic bathing beaches.
The biggest town of the area is Esbjerg with a lot of cultural offers and fine shopping possibilities. Visit the Esbjerg Art Museum or the Esbjerg water tower, one of the landmarks of the town. You may also try a seal safari at the east coast of Fanø or go by boat to Horns Rev Havmøllepark, (offshore windmill park) one of the biggest of its kind in the world. From Esbjerg you can go by ferry to Fanø.
