For many years on a weekend during the summer, enthusiasts have boarded their dragon boats in the harbour (Medienhafen) to enter the traditional Dragon Boat Cup.
From late morning till late afternoon, numerous teams will navigate their vessels through the waters in a mad dash racing against both the clock and the results of the other teams. Dragon boats stem originally from China and have been around for thousands of years.
In addition to watching impressive sporting activities on the water, spectators can enjoy a rich and varied cultural programme on land. Performances are interspersed with presentations and the harbour is lined with stands offering all manner of artifacts and produce.
