Silkeborg Regatta

We have to go all the way back to 1899 to trace the start of the Silkeborg Regatta. For the Regatta, Silkeborg will be decorated for parties and events, with colored lamps and torches. There will be a multitude of experiences put in place, so that the city can gather for a big folk festival, and there will be music stages with exciting artists, wonderful food stalls and illuminated boats. 

Water, light and fire are the focus of the Regatta. There will therefore also be a fantastic fireworks show!

Festival Of Wonder

You can experience over 100 different events with theaters from Denmark, Norway, France, the USA, Israel, England, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.

The Puppet Theater Festival is one of Europe's leading and most significant theater festivals within puppetry, animation and visual theatre, and takes place every other year in Silkeborg.
