Accommodation in Esbjerg

Recommend

Looking for accommodation in Esbjerg? Below is an overview of the city's rental market.

With a population of some 115,000 inhabitants, Esbjerg is one of the medium-sized Danish cities. Located in the South of Denmark, in the West of Jutland, it has been attracting many foreign nationals over the years.

Indeed, Esbjerg hosts the major port on the Northern Sea, as well as an airport which makes a significant contribution to the tourism sector. Note that Esbjerg is the 5th major Danish city in terms of its population's density. Moreover, there is so much to discover there during your free time if you are planning to settle there.

Types of accommodation

Esbjerg is above all an industrial city. Therefore, you are not likely to find individual houses and villas. Note that Esbjerg ranks 19th among the most attractive Danish cities in terms of real estate. However, you can still find several residential neighborhoods and flat blocks across the city.

Rent prices

Esbjerg is particularly famous for its tranquility as well as affordable rent prices compared to other major Danish cities. Moreover, variations in terms of neighborhoods and types of accommodation (city center or outskirts, apartments or studio) are not as significant as in other cities.

You can hence rent a studio in the outskirts for around DKK 2,000 against DKK 2,700 for the same type of housing unit in the city center. For a bigger apartment, you will need an average of DKK 5,600 and DKK 8,000 according to the neighborhood.

Find accommodation

Word of mouth is deemed to be the best way of finding accommodation in Esbjerg. Moreover, the municipality provides assistance to expatriates in their housing search. You can therefore seek its help if you don't know from where to start.

You might as well seek the help of a real estate agency for better chances of finding accommodation as per your criteria. In all cases, you may have to wait for one to three months to find long term housing offers, especially due to the presence of students in the city.
