After our trip to the Viking market in Ribe, we weren’t quite ready to head back to Billund yet. I got a quick recommendation from a Danish co-worker (thanks Facebook Messenger!) to find the Men at Sea, a monument just west of the city of Esbjerg. It was only a 30 minute drive from Ribe, so we all headed down there (we were with our friends from Australia), and I’m glad we did, because it’s a memorable and bizarre must-see sight.
It was built in 1994 to celebrate the municipality’s 100-year anniversary, though I’m not sure what the artist’s intent was, or why there are four of the statues. Looks like something from a Pink Floyd album cover.
Anyway, we had fun checking it out and snapping some pics before heading into Esbjerg for some dinner.
