Ports

The final leg of the Tall Ships Races 2015 will finish in the grand port of Aalborg. Aalborg has had a love affair with The Tall Ships Races since 1999, when the city hosted the event for the first time. Aalborg is situated at the Liim Fiord where it was founded by Vikings over 1000 years ago. Today Aalborg is a modern city with visible historic roots. Its theatres, symphony orchestra, performance venues, and museums, make Aalborg a great place to wind down after an exhilarating Sail adventure.

Warnemünde is a seaside resort and a district of the German harbour city Rostock. Located on the Baltic Sea, Warnemünde boasts a sandy beach. The district is known for its yearly events Warnemünder Woche and Hanze Sail. There is plenty to see and do in Warnemünde, and subways connect the beach town to the more urban Rostock. Dwell through the small alleys behind the Alter Strom, check out the lively music scene, or go for a hike along the coast. The lighthouse offers a great point of reference.
