Charm and history
Rørkjær is home to some of the oldest parts of Esbjerg, and around Exnersgade you will find beautiful, old buildings. Rørkjær is a popular area because you are close to the inner city but still far enough away from the urban traffic and noise.
In Rørkjær, there are both single-family houses and many small blocks of flats on child-friendly streets. Rørkjær is also regarded as a very charming area because of the crooked and winding streets, which is unique in contrast to the typical street grid structure found in Esbjerg.
Many of the buildings are adorned with red tiled roofs, which gives the area´s buildings a certain uniformity. The dominance of this roofing style could possibly be attributed to the large presence of brickworks in the area in the 1800's
