The most beautiful Tall Ships in the world will be in Aarhus August 1st to 4th when The Tall Ships Races 2019 come to Aarhus. The stage is set for a harbour festival with lots of free activities for the entire family.

Party by the Harbour

Not only is The Tall Ships Races the world’s largest sailing race, at the same time it is an unparalleled maritime folk festival. The event is expected to attract as many as half a million visitors and crew members to Aarhus’ harbour area, where everyone is in for a wide variety of cultural experiences. At the event square, lots of free activities will be available all day long, and you even have the chance to go aboard those of the ships that have an open ship event. This is free of charge.

Program 2019

Come aboard the old ships, try out a sailor’s way of life or enjoy the atmosphere and music ashore. There is street theatre for the kids, crab races, an opportunity to try out scuba diving, maritime ESport, harbour cruises, training in how to navigate with a sextant and a lot more to experience.

Two stages featuring live music enhance the entertaining atmosphere. The programme has something for all ages and every taste. Take a ride on Denmark’s tallest Ferris wheel. Soar 40 metres above the waterfront to experience the magnificent views of the ships, the city and the bay.

The Tall Ships Races event offers experiences for the entire family.

Join the adventure.
