Get married in Esbjerg - the city buzzing with life

In Esbjerg, the Gamle Ting- og Arresthus (The Old Town Hall) from 1892 sets the romantic scene of your wedding.

In this house, which is centrally located at the Square in the heart of Esbjerg, the wedding takes place in the beautiful wedding room.


Ting- og Arresthuset was built in 1892, and was used for official purposes until 1983. The prisoncells was used until 1947, when the last inmates were released.
During World War II, the German Occupation used the house for their purpose, and many Danish freedom fighters were imprisoned here. The prisoncells still exist in the Jail House.

If you like, you can enjoy a refreshment with your guests, in an adjoining room, after the ceremony.

How the wedding ceremony takes place

It is very important to us that your wedding will be as your wishes. One of our registrars will conduct the official part of the ceremony, accompanied by a wedding speech on love and marriage.

Then it’s time to exchange rings and to take wedding photos. The ceremony ends with receiving your marriage certificate.


Opportunity to enjoy a glass after the ceremony

If you like, it is of course also possible for you to enjoy a refreshment with your guests, in an adjoining room, after the ceremony. To make sure it is possible, you may ask at the wedding office or the staff when you arrive at Ting and Arresthuset, so we can ensure that the room is available. If you know how many guests coming, please let us know in advance.

Remember: You must bring your own glasses, drinks/ bervarage, etc.


Some days, we have many weddings. Therefore the room can only be used for 10-15 minutes. Would you like it to last a little longer, can VisitEsbjerg help you find a nice place to hold a reception or party.

In 2013 the Ting- og Arresthus underwent a major restoration, so the house today appears admirable and creates a beautiful and lovely​ surroundings for your wedding.
