The impressive fleet of traditional tall ships will once again visit Esbjerg in August 2025.

In August 2025, Esbjerg will be the final port for The Tall Ships Races from the 6th-9th. August. This means a happy reunion with the impressive schooners at the quayside along Port Esbjerg.

An event for the entire family

Beautiful ships and exciting entertainment

From the 6th-9th August, the industrial areas at Esbjerg Port are temporarily transformed into a festival area with experiences, stands, and lots of good entertainment. The absolute stars of the event are the beautiful and historic ships that take part in the race and thus also visit Esbjerg.

We eagerly anticipate the participation of numerous ships in the race and all of Esbjerg looks forward to extending a warm welcome to the crews on the ships. Esbjerg, known as the EnergyMetropolis of Denmark and a leading force in the energy transition, is ready to embrace this extraordinary event. With a rich maritime heritage and a commitment to sustainable energy, our port city is the perfect host for The Tall Ships Races.

Since 1956, the meeting between nations and the cultural exchange has been a key idea at Sail Training International, which is the organizer behind the maritime sailing event. 

The Tall Ships Races last visited Esbjerg in 2022 but has been a recurring event for many years, starting in 1993 and held in 2001, 2014, and 2018.
