Programme Outline

Ports

Kristiansand is the business and cultural capital of southern Norway. The sea and surrounding fjords are perfect for recreational activities like fishing and sailing, and the nearby inland and mountains are ideal for skiing and hiking. In the more urban areas you will find a rich variety of cafes, restaurants, art galleries and museums.

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.
