By ferry
==Get in==
===By Railtrain===The train station is located in the town center centre and this connects you to pretty all of Denmark and beyond.
===By Planeplane===*Esbjerg Airport [http://www.esbjerg-lufthavn.dk/english_site/e_index.html Esbjerg Airport] is located in the eastern part of the city, with local bus connections. There are flight connections to [[London]] (Stanstead Airport), [[Aberdeen]] and [[Stavanger]]-[[Bergen]], [[Norway]]
*Billund Airport [http://www.billund-airport.dk/Home/Forside.aspx?lang=en Billund Airport] is western Denmark's biggest and more well connected. It is conveniently located about an hour's drive from Esbjerg.
The low-fare airline Ryan Air serves Esbjerg with flights from London Stansted Airport.
Esbjerg is the terminal for the DFDS [http://www.dfdsseaways.co.uk] overnight ships to England. Billund Airport, an hour away, is served by bus.
===By Busferry===Getting to Esbjerg from the UK is simple. With a regular ferry from Harwich [http://www.dfdsseaways.co.uk/Ferry_Crossings/Harwich_Esbjerg/Ferry_to_Denmark], you arrive in Esbjerg around midday. This service is due to end on 29 September 2014 but a new ferry company is due to restart the service in April 2015. You can get the number 5 bus, just outside the terminal from Esbjerg port to the railway station in the centre of town. ===By bus===
Express busses connect Esbjerg to [[Aalborg]], [[Aarhus]] and [[Sønderborg]] as well as other towns in Denmark.
==Get around==
The town is centered around the harbour and shopping area (Skolegade, Kongensgade). As the town area is rather small, it is possible to get most places by walking. However, you might consider using the public bus for the more far sights as Fisheries- and Maritime Museum in Hjerting.
