The Esbjerg Performing Arts Centre was completed in 1997 to designs by Jan and Jørn Utzon.When approached by sea, the Man Meets the Sea is one of the prominent monuments, consisting of four 9-metre-tall (27 feet) white-coloured men, overlooking Sædding Beach.Lonely Planet remarked that "nobody comes to Esbjerg for a holiday, in fact, as with many industrial ports, most visitors rush through as quickly as possible".Esbjerg is the main town for Denmark's oil and offshore activities, with companies like Maersk, Ramboll, Stimwell Services, ABB, Schlumberger, COWI and Atkins all having offshore-related activities in the town. The port has served the Danish offshore industry since oil and gas were first extracted from the North Sea in the early 1970s.At the time, Esbjerg consisted of only a few farms.Developed under royal decree from 1868 until 1874, the harbour was officially opened in 1874, with rail connections to Varde and to Fredericia, an important hub on the east coast of Jutland.
It later became part of Vestjyske Slagterier in 1986, and in 2001, it was acquired by Danish Crown.
More recently, it has become a centre for shipping offshore wind turbines.
In addition to handling 65 percent of all Danish wind turbines, which supply 3 gigawatts (4,000,000 hp) of offshore wind power, components have been shipped to various British wind farms.
Initial planning of the town was conducted by chartered surveyor H.
Wilkens in 1870 with streets laid out in the form of a rectangular grid.
