West Jutland is a place of growing industry and trade, mixing the traditional with the modern.
Struer is an important railway center, while Hostlebro sits astride the Storaen River as one of the major cultural and commercial cities of western Jutland and offers miles of walking trails as well as boating adventures.
Esbjerg is one of the hidden traveler's gems in Europe and possibly beyond, and it's easy to lose track of all the elements that give the city its charm. One highlight is the Scattering of Stars, a series of 288 lights sunk into the cobblestone roads leading around the city. The lights of white, yellow and pale blue colors represent the night sky over Torvegade at midnight on New Year's Eve 2000. Another unforgettable facet of Esbjerg is the four sentinels looking out into the water. Visible from 10 kilometers out in the harbor, 'Man Meets the Sea' was created in 1995 and its classic stone architecture invites endless interpretations and a sense of mystery.
The Danish cottages are well-appointed, comfortable and modern, making for just the break from a long day among the sights and scenes of western Jutland.
