Nothing particularly special, but it is nice to climb the tower and get a good view of Esbjerg. Should be part of a walking tour of the area.

I visited the tower, however it is only open on Saturdays and Sundays I believe. You can walk right up to the tower, and explore around the outside - there is a really lovely park. I'm not sure if there is an entrance fee when...More

Has a nice view of the surroundings including the harbor. Walking distance from the town square and it´s surroundings are also lovely to hang around either for solo or better with friends

It is worth to walk to see this tower and the park around it is also nice area, but paying to go inside it is not worth the price...nor is the view from the topfloor!

The Esbjerg Vandtårn is good to visit. Here you can see many of the Places on "The old Harbour" and the history about many Places.

It is quite a landmark and close to the city centre and a historic building in Esbjerg. Sometimes they have art exhibitions in the tower. The park nearby is nice and has good places to relax. But limited view of the harbor due to the...More
