Successful mix of sailing regatta, festival and entertainment
World, European and German championships on the water, a festival with pyrotechnic highlights, gourmet mile as well as children's fun and games: All this is on offer at the Travemünder Woche in a single major event. Around one million visitors travel to the mouth of river Trave during the "TW".
They all look for high-quality entertainment right in the middle of the holiday season. And the boot Düsseldorf is part of all that: not just with the traditional Travemünder Woche reception bringing together guests from sports, business and politics on the tall-ship "Passat" but also with the daily weather information service on site for regatta participants, organizers and the audience.
The sailors of the Travemünder Woche get very close to the spectators in their races. Sailing happens not just within in sight of the spectators, but the action is so close it can almost be felt. Every afternoon following the official races on the bay of Lübeck, the mouth of the river Trave is turned into a "sailing arena". Spectacular boat classes present short and highly contested races in a confined space directly off the towns seafront.
Entertainment and Festival Ten days Travemünder Woche also means loads of fun and activities at the beach and around the tall-ship "Passat" as well as culinary delights, music and performances along the banks of River Trave. Travemünder Woche offers fans this mixture of sport and culture. These include a festival stage with performances by well-known rock and rop stars as well as top-class cover bands, a playground for the little ones and a climbing wall.
A friendship built on trust Thanks to their long-standing partners and suppliers, the boot Düsseldorf being among the oldest partners who support the event, the organizers of Travemünder Woche are able to provide a programme on an international level. The organizers have established a trusting relationship with the sponsors in recent years and can in return rely on good cooperation.
Travemünder-Woche-Reception at boot Düsseldorf Every year, these partnerships have already been agreed in January when the friends and sponsors of Travemünder Woche gather at the boot Düsseldorf for the Travemünder-Woche-Reception at the boat show and revel in anticipation for the upcoming sailing spectacle with its culinary, visula and acoustic highlights.
Locational advantage Travemünde The Bay of Lübeck is one of the largest German regatta areas with a cohesive sea area from Neustadt to Wismar. The fascination and possibilities which the Bay of Lübeck offers attracts 2000 to 3000 sailors and surfers year after year and thus makes the Travemünder Woche one of the largest water sports events in the world.
The sailing area The sailing area of the Bay of Lübeck offers unique conditions for top class racing: the strongest measured current was 16 centimeters per second, which has no influence whatsoever on the sailing. The prevailing wind direction in the sailing season from May to October is West to South-West. The flat coastal profile around the Bay of Lübeck has no terrain elevations which could affect the air flow to any great extend. With a probability 90%, the wind is above two but below seven Beaufort - the average wind speed is between three and four Beaufort. In other words: perfect sailing conditions!
On shore Travemünde also offers excellent conditions on land: in the middle of the touristic center of Travemünde the organizers have a state-of-the-art regatta location at their disposal with numerous communication facilities, spaces for the race management, jury, coaches and the press. Located around the regatta centre, several hundred in-water and on shore berths are available for the event. The races on the water are supported by a large fleet of race management boats and the latest communication technology.
