Welcome to the Skov-Nielsen homepage

The main purpose of these pages is to introduce ourselves to families who might be interested in exchanging houses for the summer 2015.
We are looking for exchange in 2-3 weeks between end of July to mid August.

We are:

Esbjerg is the 5th largest city in Denmark (80.000 inhabitants) and situated at the west coast of Jutland.
Recently Esbjerg has been selected as "City of the Year" in Denmark. By the way it's the second time in the last ten years.

In Esbjerg you will find shopping centres, pedestrian streets, swimming center (with 50 m pool, spa, waves, waterchute etc.), a large harbour and museums - including aquarium with saltwater fish and seals.

Within 30-60 km you can reach Ribe - the oldest town in Denmark, Legoland and the wide sandy beaches of the North Sea.

From the harbour you can take the ferry (12 min.) to the picturesque island of Fanø, with it's historical and charming houses and beautiful beaches.

And with the bridge/tunnel across Store Baelt you can reach Copenhagen in 3 hours.

We live on a quiet road in the middle of Esbjerg:
