Travemünde Sailing Week

Founded in 1889, the Travemünder Woche is now being held for the 128th time. The most popular regatta week in the world came about when Hamburg businessmen Hermann Wentzel and Hermann Dröge raced past Travemünde. The winner received a bottle of Lübeck Rotspon. The Lübeck Yacht-Club was founded just nine years later, in 1898, at the request of Kaiser Wilhelm II, to provide an institution to organise the Travemünder Woche professionally. Each year, the Travemünder Woche attracts thousands of active sailors and around a million enthusiastic spectators and visitors, who enjoy the major sporting event, as well as the fantastic festival on land. No place in the world comes close to Travemünde in terms of combining sailing with such a rich and varied programme on land. Friendly atmosphere, top sport, summer, beach feeling and show are the highlights that make the Travemünder Woche stand out year after year.
