Programme Outline

Ports

Esbjerg is a beautiful coastal city in the South-West of Denmark, with the second biggest harbour in Denmark - a lively place full of fishing and shipping activities. You can observe the town's maritime history in its attractions: from the Fisheries- and Maritime Museum, Esbjerg Skibet statue to the Men at Sea monument, everything brings you back to the sea. Visit also the Ribe Vikinge Center, a fun outdoor museum where you will meet the Vikings themselves!

Lowestoft is a town on the North Sea coast of England. It is an old sea port and fishing center. Cherish the atmosphere of the lively harbour with its fountains, coffee shops and little food stands. Visit the Mincarlo - Floating Maritime Museum to learn about the life of fishermen in the old days or an old Lowestoft and East Suffolk Maritime Museum run by volunteers who will happily share their knowledge. For a relaxing afternoon take a walk in Somerleyton Hall and Gardens.
