11th May - 20th October 2019
This year, for the first time, the Sandsculpture Festival of the organiser "Sculpture Events" opens its doors near the Fishermen's Harbour from May 11th to October 20th, 2019 on an area of 5,600 square metres. The Sandsculpture Festival takes place in a covered boat shed and is an event for the whole family, promising "Maritime Adventures" made of sand.
The fishing port with its chugging fishing vessels, delicious fish specialties and charming restaurants, as well as the planned new promenade is enriched with the venue for the Sandsculpture Festival by one attraction. The entire summer season into the autumn, it becomes the centre of attraction for the seaside guests, especially for families with children. The area of the sand sculptures is supplemented by a gastronomy area and a sand playground for children.
Since the sand sculptures are in a boat shed and not in the open air, they are weather independent and have an almost unlimited life span. The sand sculptors can build in the hall with more risk and work much more detailed. But the sand is not Baltic sand, but a sharp-edged young river sand that has not yet been abraded by wind and water. Since you can "stack" this special sand, it is possible to create the impressive, meter-high works of art out of sand.
