Harwich Esbjerg Ferry reviews

  • "A mini cruise"

    We recently took the ferry between Harwich ans Esbjerg and felt like on a luxurious mini cruise. The crossing takes 19 hours, the ship is extremely comfortable, the crew very friendly and it was a most wonderful experience. A great way to travel.

  • "Overnight to Denmark"

    A great way to get to Denmark with a car or bike - though sadly the boat will stop running in the autumn. Good cabin and great buffet - but you must book a place. Drinks in the bar no more expensive than in Denmark itself though it was not that full and shut at midnight.

  • "Great service, even better in Sirena Class"

    Expensive but delightful - will be sorely missed.

Harwich Guide

Located in the English county of Essex, the town and port of Harwich lies on the North Sea coast, on the estuaries of the River Stour and River Orwell. Operated by Stena Line, Harwich ferry port to Holland is the most popular Harwich route, arriving in the Hook of Holland.

Harwich’s port facilities include waiting lounges, shops, a bureau de change, cafes and restaurants. There are also local water taxi and ferry services from Harwich to Shotley and Felixstowe. The Port of Harwich also accommodates cruise ships that continue on to destinations in the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea and beyond.

Its proximity to the sea has resulted in the town having a well-established, long history with both the military and merchant navy. In 1652, the town became a naval base and was heavily fortified with Harwich Redoubt, Beacon Hill Battery and Bath Side Battery. Containing many historic buildings, Harwich's old town has been declared a conservation area.


Esbjerg Guide

The Danish town of Esbjerg, sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to Jutland" is located on the south west coast of Denmark and is the fifth largest town in the country which has developed around its harbour. The town was established with 30 residents in 1868 and now has a population of around 80,000. This vibrant town, which is the capital of the west coast, has excellent shopping, exhibitions and many other things to do and see. Throughout the summer, the harbour seems to be the centre of activities. Visitors can embark on a sea safari and observe the town from the sea and at the same time see the seals and the many species of birds of the Wadden Sea. Many visitors to this region of Denmark also take a trip to the Danish island resort of Fanø with its pure white beaches and migrating birds close to the main village of Nordby.
